A SLICE® of science excellence


James Hutton Limited surpasses SEPA validation requirements for emamectin benzoate analysis

James Hutton Limited continues to provide analytical services to help fish farmers attain the maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of emamectin benzoate (EMB). Recent changes in legislation require analysis for EMB pesticide in marine water and sediments to detect levels 1,000 times lower than previously.

The active ingredient in SLICE®, EMB is used to control sea lice – a major problem in aquaculture. The team at James Hutton Limited are experienced in this sector and have been carrying out EMB analysis to the detection limits previously required for more than 15 years.

The organisation has adapted its technology to meet the new legislative requirements using liquid chromatography triple quadrupole tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS).

The methodology is validated to the requirements of SEPA and now is the time to learn more about the services and how they can help you.

Four key benefits of using James Hutton Limited:
• analysis is carried out by our world-class scientists at the renowned James Hutton Institute;
• we use sophisticated analytical instruments to complete the analysis;
• we can reach the new detection limits that are extremely difficult to achieve; and
• it will ultimately allow your fish farm to keep operating!
