Multi-method pesticides in whole treated cherries (P1905-RT)


The sample preparation and homogenisation is one of the critical steps in analysing pesticides in food.
In order to close the gap between routine samples and common ring test samples (homogenates), ring test P1905-RT is designed to include the sample preparation procedure. 

Whole (non-homogenised) cherries (1 kg per lab)
are provided as test material.

The cherries are treated on the field with a selection of common cherry pesticides, which are covered by pesticide multi-residue methods. Due to controlled conditions during
the application of the pesticides, the test material is
homogeneous, even thought it is not a homogenate.

The analytical data are assessed with respect to the comparability (z-score).
