Pesticide Residues Test Kits

Background on Food Pesticide Residues

Pesticides are any substance or mixture of substances intended for preventing, destroying, repelling or mitigating pests, which are known to improve agriculture yield considerably leading to an increase in its application over the years. Classes of pesticides commonly used in crops growing include insecticides (to control insect infestations), fungicides (to control the spread of fungal diseases) and herbicides (to control the competing effects of weeds). Pesticide residues may be present in food because of the following reasons: direct use of pesticides on food crops, animal feeding on pesticide-treated feed or environmental contamination.Eating food with excessive pesticide residues may cause acute and/or chronic adverse health effects. Symptoms of acute poisoning include vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain, dizziness and numbness. In severe cases, people may even have difficulties in breathing, blurred vision and convulsion.

Pesticide Residues Test Kits

Food pesticides residues test kits are common tools for detecting pesticides in food, as well as important means to ensure food safety. Food pesticides residues test kits can be divided into the following categories:

  • Detection of insecticides (organophosphorus insecticides, organochlorine insecticides, organic nitrogen insecticide, organic nitrogen insecticides, carbamates, acaricide, lime sulfur mixture, etc.) in fruits, vegetables and grain, etc.
  • Detection of fungicides (fungicides, bactericides and virucides) in fruits, vegetables and grain, etc.
  • Detection of herbicides (inorganic herbicides, mineral oil herbicides, organic herbicides) in fruits, vegetables and grain, etc.
