Seed Treatment Analysis

Sidebar Image

Seed treatment loading rate analysis determines the accuracy of the application of seed treatments (chemical fungicides, insecticides and biologicals) on a wide variety of seeds. With more experience in seed treatment analysis than any other third-party lab in the industry, Eurofins BioDiagnostics uses proprietary HPLC methods to verify treatment application rates, helping customers achieve desired application, control costs and manage their liability.

Drawing on their expertise, our professionals work closely with customers to calibrate treaters and verify proper application rates throughout the production season. In this way, we will consult with you on an ongoing basis to help you streamline and optimize your seed treatment processes.

EBDI also offers residue analysis to determine the presence and absence of commonly used grain protectants  in seed samples.
