Focus areas for food safety analytical testing
Meet increasing food testing demands on time and with a high degree of accuracy in almost every area, including:
From time-saving sample preparation and extraction to the analysis of hundreds of pesticides and their metabolites in a single run, we can help ensure reliable and efficient results while complying with regulatory requirements.
Reduce start-up time and cost associated with expanding analytical capabilities. With our LC-MS solutions, you can perform robust targeted quantitation of multiclass veterinary drug residues in food matrices.
Deliberate adulteration of food and misrepresentation to deceive consumers are illegal worldwide. Our testing innovations help you distinguish between genuine and fraudulent ingredients to instill consumer confidence.
Regulations regarding POPs, such as dioxins and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), are increasingly strict, requiring modern instruments and methods for screening and identification.
From carbohydrates and sugar substitutes, to vitamins and additives, our products provide fast, accurate testing and labeling information for all applications in this industry.
