Japanese firm unveils residue testing system

The Japanese chemical analysis and research firm, QSAI Analysis and Research Center (Fukuoka), has developed a multi-residue analysis system that can “simultaneously examine” food samples for 650 different agrochemical residues. This is the largest number of agrochemicals that can concurrently be detected by any analysis system, the company claims. QSAI has begun accepting orders for the residue analysis service, at a charge of ¥273,000 ($3,060) per sample. The system can be used on processed food and non-food items. Japan implemented a ban on the sale of imported or domestic commodities that contain residues exceeding maximum residue limits in May 2006 ( Agrow No 496, p 15).
