Polar pesticides and glycoalkaloids in potatoes

P2320-RT is designed to cover the most relevant polar pesticides in potato. Two challenging parameters, diquat and paraquat are offered as a special module (module 1).

According to Recommendation (EU) 2022/561 of the European Commission the monitoring of glycoalkaloids is recommeded for potatoes and potato products. The Commission demands for a reliable and comparable monitoring of the alkaloids.
In order to support laboratories in achieving this aim, the glycoalkaloids alpha-solanine and alpha-chaconine are offered as a special module (module 2) of this ring test. 


Basic module

chlorpropham, maleic hydrazide, melamine, phosphonic acid

Module 1

diquat, paraquat

Module 2

alpha-solanine, alpha-chaconine
