Laboratory

We have a state of the art laboratory as well as a highly qualified staff.

  • In vitro efficacy trials of bactericides, fungicides, insecticides and nematicides.
  • Evaluation of viability and stability of  products.
  • Analysis of microorganisms (fungi and bacteria), nematodes and pathogenic microorganisms, both on soil and on vegetal material.
  • Micotoxines analysis.
  • Quality and nutraceutic properties analysis.
  • Soil quality analysis, including enzymatic activity of the soil.
  • Identification of microorganisms through PCR, microbiological and biochemical techniques.
  • Feed and Food microbiological analysis.
  • Environmental microbiologic quality.

IN VITRO EFFICACY TRIALS OF BACTERICIDES, FUNGICIDES, INSECTICIDES AND NEMATICIDES MADE MAINLY OF SUBSTANCES OF ORGANIC ORIGIN

This type of trials is used as a screening to determine the efficacy and dosage at which products and active substance are effective in the phytopathogens control. It also allows us to find out if their effect is biostatic or biocidal.

PCR TESTS

This technique is used for the accurate diagnosis and analysis of phytopathogenic diseases as well as the identification of biocontrol and PGPR microorganisms.

ISOLATION, QUANTIFICATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF NEMATODES

On soil and on plant material. Through the identification and counting of phytopathogenic nematodes, we advise the farmers about the infestation level of the crops.

FEED AND FOOD NUTRICIONAL ANALYSIS

Depending on which drop we are working with, we select the most important parameters, determine the acidity, the soluble solids, CIE Lab  color, vitamins and other nutracetics and organoleptic parameters. Check our available parameters list.

MICROBIOLOGICAL TEST

At Ideagro´s laboratory we carry out microbiological analysis of products and food, offering our clients reliable results.

ENZYMATIC ACTIVITY OF THE SOIL

Soil enzymes provide us with information about their potential capacity to perform specific reactions. These reactions are very important within the cycle of essential nutrients, such as C,N,P and S. This can provide us with key information about soil quality. They are an objective indicator to verify the fertilizing effect of a microorganism as well as its effect on soil health.

EVALUATION VIABILITY AND STABILITY OF PRODUCTCS

After the formulation of the product, we evaluate the persistence of the action, its stability in time and its compatibility with other products it is usually applied with.

MICOTOXINES ANALYSIS

Within a wide range of matrix, we analyse the most important micotoxines. Our broad experience in this type of analysis includes more than 14000 analysis of 90 different matrixes, offering reliable results.
