Fipronil testing available at ALS

Tuesday 08 August 2017

In light of the current concerns surrounding the potential presence of the Fipronil in eggs, ALS is now able to provide its clients a service for detecting Fipronil, including its metabolites, in both eggs and meat.

The analysis, which is carried out at our Chatteris laboratory in Cambridgeshire, is currently unaccredited. Using LC-MS-MS technology we are able to achieve a reporting limit of 0.002mg/kg.

The standard lead-time for the analysis is up to 10 working days. However, a fast-track priority 3 working day service is also available (subject to demand) via our Client Services Team at Chatteris (call 01354 697028).

If you require a quotation for this analysis please contact us at

Further information on Fipronil is available via the Food Standards Agency website:
