SmartAssays are an important component in the establishment of an advanced quality management system spanning origins to final product and utilizing the advantages of both immunoassay and instrumental analysis at appropriate points in the process.


As part of a well-developed system for meeting diverse pesticide residue analysis needs, SmartAssay series immunoassay kits allow rapid, easy, low cost and sensitive quantitative analysis.

Examples of Successful Applications

Traceability of farm products

Produce growers have begun to offer the results of pesticide analysis along with other information to appeal to a growing consumer concern with food safety and security. Pesticide residue analysis using SmartAssay kits allows timely, cost-effective measurement of multiple samples.

Acceptance inspection of farm products

Unliked outsourced pesticide analysis, which requires more than 3 days for the results to become available, SmartAssay kits requires only 2 hours. This enables incoming inspection confirming the safety of the product right at the time of delivery, guaranteeing good quality control and safety/security of farm products. This results in increased brand value.

Use as a pesticide-related research tool

SmartAssay Series test kits are most applicable for quantitatively measuring pesticide residue attached to leaves and fruit trees after spraying, and are more accurate than qualitative analysis using water-sensitive paper. 

Test kits also enable simple, quantitative testing of pesticide prevalence in farm products or soil.  Additionally, test kits are also useful for multiple samples analysis required for taking drift-prevention measures during pesticide spraying.

The simplicity and low cost of SmartAssay Series test kits also make them very useful for proof-of-principle demonstration purposes.  Such applications include assessment tools in manufactures' development themes for constructing self-regulated analysis systems in agricultural extension centers and as education tools for pest control curriculum in university agricultural courses and public education programs.

Proposed Implementation

Advanced system for pesticide residue analysis

An effective testing strategy can be developed using the advantages of both instrumental and immunoassay analysis.  Residue testing for pesticides with a high probability of occurrence is simplified using immunoassay kits for the routine analysis and with instrumental analysis as a  periodic confirmation test.  This combination enables an effective quality control system with optimized cost performance.
