Lab Testing Process

Food Pesticide Testing

Heavy usage of pesticide in agriculture may result in toxic chemicals entering the food chain. Using liquid (triple quadrupole UPLC-MS/MS) and gas (GC-MS/MS) chromatography techniques and other modern technologies, we provide expert analytical services for hundreds of pesticides in a full range of matrices, including cereals, fruit and vegetables, fat, dairy, beverages, and meat and fish.

AI food pesticide testing service includes:

  • Organochlorides
  • Organophosphates
  • Organonitrogens
  • Carbamates
  • Additional pesticides and multi-residue screens

With the increasing control on pesticide residue worldwide, you can trust Compliance Enviro Services to stay up to date with the latest regulations food safety measures.

Chemical Hazard Analysis for Foods (regular items and heavy metals)

In recent years, multiple food safety scandals showed that heavy metal contamination remains a persistent threat. Milk and rice, for example, are often found to contain arsenic and cadmium in concentrations beyond permissible limits. Though these metals occur naturally, such man-made factors as industrial sewage, smelters and the use of fertilizers increased their concentration in the soil, from which they can be taken up by plants and enter the food chain. Due to the growing number of regulations and health concerns, all food companies and especially exporters should implement comprehensive testing programs to assure food product safety.

Using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS), AI helps manufacturers detect even extremely low levels of such metals as Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead and Mercury in food. The detection limit is 1 ppb for liquids and 5 ppb for solids.

Food Microbiology Testing (pathogens and spoilage indicators)

Our extensive range of microbiological tests will assess the safety of fresh food and food products, helping you eliminate food-borne pathogens from your merchandise and avoid safety recalls.

AI offers microbiological tests on all commonly found pathogens and spoilage indicator organisms:
