Ensuring the safety and quality of food and beverages can be challenging. Quality and safety of raw materials, through the manufacturing process to the end products must be constantly monitored to ensure regulatory compliance.
Analytical and microbiological testing is essential for food safety and food quality. It is able to detect chemical contaminants such as antibiotics, pesticides and heavy metals. It is also key for adulteration, food fraud and other unexpected impurities testing , such as extractables and leachables and veterinary drugs residues.
Whether you are testing for contaminants ,or developing a new production process, we are here to help. Our innovative food and beverage testing solutions, analytical instruments and consumables, along with our knowledgeable employees, allow our customers to maintain their focus where it should be — on delivering safe, high-quality food products that consumers expect.
Within the food and beverage learning center you will have access to all food and beverage analysis techniques available to the modern testing laboratory. We look at food microbiology testing, manufacturing and processing, food analytical and authenticity testing as well as beverage testing.

With stricter global food safety regulations, traceability is critical. Using a Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS), management of data becomes automatic and straightforward, secure and reliable and defensible for audit trails and regulatory compliance. LIMS is a central repository for data and test results, providing traceability of samples and lab processes.
From routine monitoring of chemical and elemental compounds, to food safety and nutritional research, we have an extensive library of food analytical testing information. Learn about the analysis of carbohydrates, food adulteration (also known as food fraud), food contact materials, pesticide residue analysis and many more.
Determining the authenticity of a product is important for many reasons. Is the product pure; does it match the label claims? Thermo Scientific has advanced instrumentation that can help in the area of food authenticity to determine the purity of the food and beverage product. Our state of the art products help labs check for the purity of wine, beer, edible oils, fruit juices and many other products.
Analysis, inspection, and control of ingredients and packaging in the lab and on the floor.
Solutions for isolation, detection and confirmation of microorganisms in meat, poultry, fruit and vegetables, seafood, dairy and other food and beverage products. We have solutions that simplify the workflow of a food testing laboratory using traditional (culture media), immunological and rapid real-time PCR methods to identify pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria) and routine (coliforms, yeast and mold) organisms.
