Food Safety and Testing
From research, to testing and monitoring, to the investigation of a food safety crisis, our innovations and expertise enable you to produce consistently superior results. Experience our methods-based consulting and applications support in addition to the most comprehensive line of instrument, equipment, consumables, chemicals, reagents and software available.
Food producers are challenged with ensuring the quality and safety of raw ingredients, testing for consistency and conformity in processed food, beverages and their packaging, and meeting unique regulatory requirements. Throughout the workflow our products facilitate accurate sampling, automate sample preparation, provide accurate analysis with efficient information management, and inspect finished products for quality.
Allergens are a growing problem around the world, and our ELISA based assay kits and related products offer the ability to detect trace levels of allergen proteins to avoid contamination.
The ability to monitor the ingredients of a process and understand the reactions and interactions of the components is a powerful tool in producing quality food products.
Managing analysis data is a function of a Laboratory Information Management System, (LIMS), which can organize data for validation, traceability, reporting and record retention.
Microbiological organisms are the most dangerous and prolific types of food safety threats, typically requiring mitigation through prevention, HAACP, and constant vigilance.
We offer solutions for ensuring beverage quality control as well as chemical contaminant detection in drinking water.
As new, unexpected compounds are found to be present in food, beverages, and drinking water, the demand for reliable, non-targeted screening methods is increasing.
Solutions to test and analyze food and beverages for the presence of complex chemical contaminants such as Acrylamide, Dioxins, Melamine, Pesticides, Veterinary Drug Residues, Fungicides and others.
We provide contaminant detection equipment to locate metal, glass, stone and other dense foreign objects in packaged food to ensure your products are safe for consumption and to protect your brand.
Confidently extract, quantify, and identify complex natural products.
There are many parameters used to define product quality such as viscosity and rheology, net weight control, nutrients, additives, and other indicators of food and beverage quality.
