Food Safety Testing

Consumption of food contaminated with mycotoxins, pesticide residues, antibiotic residues or heavy metals can lead to serious health implications when these contaminants are present above permissible levels. Our trace analysis laboratory can detect (up to ppb levels) the following residues using standard and in-house validated methods:

  • Pesticide & Insecticide Residues using GC with Headspace, GC MSMS, LC MSMS, and HPLC
  • Fumigation Residues in Cereals and Spices (ETO & ECH residues, Methyl Bromide/Inorganic Bromide, Hydrogen Phosphide
  • Mycotoxins using LC MSMS & HPLC FLD
  • Heavy Metals using ICPMS, ICP OES, and AAS
  • Methyl Mercury/ Organic Arsenic using ICP MS with Speciation Technique
  • Naturally Occurring Toxins (NOTs)
  • Residual Solvents in Vegetable Oils and Food Products
  • Dioxins & Furans
  • Banned Dyes/ Sudan Dyes in Spices
  • Coal Tar Dyes in Food Products
  • Malachite Green (MG), Leuco Malachite Green (LMG), Crystal Violet (CV), and Leuco Crystal Violet (LCV) in shrimps
  • Antibiotics Residues in Meat and Marine Products using LCMSMS (Nitrofuran Metabolites, Chloramphenicol, Tetracyclines, and Sulphonamides)
  • Melamine Presence in Food Products
  • Non GMO testing
  • Packaged Drinking Water testing as per IS 14543 under BIS recognition
  • Microbial Pathogens
