Allergens With the level of allergic individuals increasing in nearly all developed countries, the demand for accurate, sensitive and easy to use methods of detection is ever increasing. Gain insights into how food producers and processors ensure the safety and quality of their products including disclosure of possible allergen risks.
Authenticity and Traceability Meet the challenges of ensuring the quality and safety of raw ingredients, testing for consistency and conformity in processed food, beverages and their packaging, while meeting unique regulatory requirements.
Beverage and Drinking Water Beverage production is a worldwide, multibillion dollar industry that is continually growing. From the R&D stage to product development to manufacturing, from raw ingredients to final product quality control, testing must be performed to ensure regulatory compliance, product consistency and safety.
Chemical Contaminants Understand which solutions are best 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 more.
Dietary and Herbal Supplements Confidently extract, quantify, and identify complex natural products. Nature provides the ingredients for nutraceuticals and we provide the instruments to test these products. We have the expertise and solutions to help you learn about the pharmacology, metabolism and toxicology of these molecularly-diverse compounds.
Food Processing The ability to monitor the ingredients and understand the reactions and interactions of the components is a powerful tool in producing quality food products. Learn more about ways to analyze, test, or monitor food products and ingredients and processes to ensure conformance to standards and expectations.
Microbiological Organisms Microbiological organisms are the most dangerous and prolific types of food safety threats, typically requiring mitigation through prevention, HAACP, and constant vigilance. Gain more confidence in meeting your microbiological food safety and quality needs.
Non-targeted Screening 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.
Physical Contaminants Detecting physical contaminants in food, such as metal, glass, stone, plastic and bone, is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. These contaminants may be as small as 1 mm in diameter. Discover how to effectively scan packaged food products to detect the smallest physical contaminants.
Quality Control 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. Apply testing for accuracy and precision needed to assure your food and beverages are safe and conform to required quality parameters.
Trace Elements Using innovative technologies for trace element analysis from Arsenic to Zinc offer the necessary robustness, performance, and ease of use to make your analyses routine and reliable.
