Analyses

  • Plant protection products (PPP) analyses on treated seeds.
  • Development and validation of analytical methods for plant protection products on treated seeds.
  • Plant protection products analyses on treated seeds:
    • Adhesion to treated seeds and seed loading ;
    • Seed-to-seed uniformity of distribution ;
    • Dust amount and active substance content in the dust.

Methods and techniques

  • CIPAC method MT 175
  • CIPAC method MT 194
  • Heubach test
  • Analyse of active substance content by HPLC-DAD, UHPLC-DAD, LC-MS/MS, GC-FID and GC-MS
