Thermo Fisher Scientific (California, USA) has established a new Pesticide Analysis Center of Excellence (COE) in Runcorn, UK. The center is a new resource available to government and industrial laboratories looking to improve methods for the monitoring and measurement of pesticides in the environment.

The center is modelled after the Persistent Organic Pollutants (POP) Center of Excellence in Bremen, Germany, which was established for the improvement of POP analysis in the environment, food, and animal feed. The centers have been created to provide high-productivity analytical workflows, including expert consultation, instruments, software, sample preparation, and consumables.

Paul Silcock, Thermo Fisher Scientific marketing manager and member of the new COE, said: “Our company’s ongoing mission is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner, and safer, and the ability to detect and measure pesticides is critical to this effort.” He added: “We consolidated a considerable amount of expertise, instrumentation, and other resources within the center of excellence to make them highly accessible to the environmental and food testing community.”
