MULTI-RESIDUE PESTICIDE ANALYSIS REPORTING
We have expanded our system reporting capabilities in order to provide our clients with real-time analytical results. This is achieved by means of an automatic results email notification system that will distribute the results for pre-configured critical residue levels, such as the Ethephon content of the product, to the requestor of the analysis upon completion of analysis. This process is independent of the completion of all the analyses required on the product, and therefore operational decisions dependent on the analyses of these specific residues can be made quickly and efficiently.
Our clients can be provided with exception reports for the products submitted where the results are automatically evaluated against commodity specific MRL values in order to highlight any exceedances that may have occurred. The benefit of this value adding service is that it alleviates the need for the manual transcription of data from the individual Certificates of Analysis received and can provide an overview of all analyses results obtained for a specified period or production season. This information can also be valuable in the evaluation of the effectiveness of the spray programs employed.
