Microbiological testing

Current Legislation and Industry Standards dictate that manufacturer’s must ensure food is safe from microbiological contamination throughout the food chain. We provide Microbiological testing and report against the product specifications or can provide assessment of shelf life assessment, analysis of environmental, hand swabs and water testing.

We can conduct all general microbiological examinations for spoilage organisms such as: Yeasts and Moulds, Lactobacillus, Pseudomonas and Enterobacteriaceae. Specific harmful pathogenic bacteria including but not limited to Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter or E.coli 0157. For those who require positive release we offer PCR facilities providing results  within 24 hours.   Our UKAS scope of accreditation using ISO methodology or various rapid techniques is extensive, please contact us with your specific requirement.

The submission of samples is quick and easy, by using our latest Sample submission software and testing setup protocol. This ensures all testing has a prior arrangement of testing suites with associated reject limits and a corresponding cost.
