Portable EASY KIT® compact laboratories were developed by CITROSOL in cooperation with the University of Valencia and Iata-CSIC. They are easy to use and deliver fast and economical inspection results in storage facilities.
Depending on the number of samples, the analysis of treatment solutions and waxes takes only 25 to 30 minutes. For fruit residue tests, multiple samples can be analysed within 40 to 45 minutes.
Citrosol's key development involves the analysis of fungicides used in the production of citrus fruits. One of these fungicides, pyrimethanil, is often used on pipfruit, such as pears and apples. EASY KIT® is an innovative solution for screening post-harvest treatment and end-product processes in accordance with accredited quality standards (ISO 9000, ISO 14000, HACCP) and Good Agricultural Practices (Global G.A.P.).This includes distribution channels and compliance with legal guidelines for residues.
