The threat of counterfeit and substandard agrochemicals is a neglected area with the potential for widespread negative impacts in terms of public health, the environment and the economy. UCL has undertaken a technology study, in collaboration with LGC’s Dr Ehrenstorfer, where real and counterfeit agrochemicals have been subjected to different measurement techniques. The aim was to identify an exploitable signature – a fingerprint – which could be used to differentiate genuine products. ISO 17034 reference materials provided by LGC’s Dr Ehrenstorfer supported the delivery of accurate and robust interpretations.
You can watch this recorded webinar with an excellent presentation and panel discussion hosted by Dr. Kelly Cheshire, Dr Ehrenstorfer's Global Product Manager.
