DEPARTMENT OF STUDIES OF PESTICIDE CONTENT

The main goal of the department:

analytical support of hygienic control and risk assessment of the chemical plant protection products application in the agriculture of Ukraine.

Activity areas:

– defining content of active ingredients (belonging to various chemical classes) of pesticide formulations in the environmental and industrial objects by gas-liquid and high-performance liquid chromatography;

– defining content of active ingredients (belonging to various chemical classes) of pesticide formulations in the agricultural raw material by gas-liquid and high-performance liquid chromatography;

– composing guides on detecting of active ingredients (belonging to various chemical classes) of pesticide formulations in the working air, atmospheric air, water, soil, agriculture raw material by gas-liquid and high-performance liquid chromatography;

– defining content of active ingredients (belonging to various chemical classes) in pesticide formulations by gas-liquid and high-performance liquid chromatography;

– working at methods of simultaneous detection of several active ingredients (belonging to various chemical classes) if they both are present in the sample.
