Analytica’s honey testing service provides fast and cost effective options for the high volume tests needed by beekeepers, manufacturers, and marketers. This now includes testing required by MPI for Manuka honey.
Analytica is approved by MPI to offer both the MPI Mānuka Chemical Marker and the DNA marker test under its Recognised Laboratory Programme. Analytica also holds full ISO 17025 accreditation under IANZ for both the MPI Mānuka Chemical Marker and DNA marker tests. We are the first laboratory to achieve full ISO 17025 and full RLP Approval for the MPI Mānuka honey tests. This means that results can be used to meet MPI's General Requirements for Export (GREX) of honey.
As the market leader in NZ honey testing, with excellent support available during and after testing, you are wise to work with Analytica for all your honey testing needs.
For those working with mānuka honey, we offer both the chemical marker and DNA based pollen tests proposed by MPI for mānuka honey. Analytica also offers other important tests used for grading such as ‘3-in-1’ (DHA, MG, and HMF), Leptosperin, Pollen Counting and Colour & Conductivity. And our mānuka forecasting service can help you work out how your mānuka honey will change as it is stored.
General honey tests like Tutin and C4 sugars apply to all honey, and help meet regulatory requirements in NZ and overseas. Similarly, tests such as Glyphosate, Amitraz and Diastase are required by some international markets under the Codex Standard for Honey. Our American Foulbrood (AFB) test allows screening of honey to monitor hive health or to ascertain whether a honey product will meet export requirements such as in markets like China.
Microbiology testing is arranged for you by Analytica through its partnership with CAIQTEST (Pacific) and Gribbles Dunedin (LABNET). Standard testing methodology suitable to meet international standards such as CODEX are available as well as Chinese National (GB) methods required to meet export requirements for China.
Analytica is actively involved in research, and development of new honey tests, so stay in touch to learn about these as they are launched.
