We take a solution-oriented and flexible approach to the sensory, instrumental, physio-chemical and microbiological analysis of your goods when it comes to quality, ingredients, sanitation, pollution or regulatory compliance. We guarantee you the highest safety and expertise through the latest technical equipment and highly qualified, continuously trained staff. The reliability of our analyses is regularly verified by successful proficiency tests. Numerous references are evidence of the satisfaction and loyalty of our customers.
With our physio-chemical service line we test raw materials, food, feed, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products on your behalf. We provide exact measurements, check the validity of claims, review the marketability of your products and verify the labelling of nutritional values. Furthermore, we will work with you to develop customized evaluation plans.
Our tests for residues and undesired substances are an important part of ensuring your products’ safety. With our modern laboratory equipment, including highly sensitive devices for measurement and analyses like HPLC-MS/MS, GC-MS/MS and ICP-MS/MS, we can reliably detect all forms of residue and undesired substances, such as allergens, antibiotics, residues from crop-protection agents, or pollutants in your products.
While in some foods microorganisms are beneficial, in other products they can be hazardous. They can lead to spoilage and in the worst case, endanger public health. With microbiological analysis of your products, we assure their harmlessness and marketability. We will not only analyse your products by taking cultures but also subject them to rapid tests for pathogenic microorganisms, spoilage agents, and hygiene indicators.
Using innovative solutions, we can run molecular-biological tests on your products including: GMO, allergens such as gluten, lactose, etc. and animal-based ingredients.
Molecular-biological analysis will always play a crucial role when a product must be produced without certain ingredients. Thanks to our labs’ modern equipment and networked operation, we offer complete DNA analysis and innovative solutions for national and international biologic and gene analysis requirements.
Sensory evaluation of foodstuffs is becoming increasingly important. Sensory analysis serves to standardize product characteristics and tailor them to consumer expectations. This allows companies to increase the success of new products, or to further refine existing products. Sensory analysis also plays an important role in quality assurance. Unexpected aromas can have a wide range of possible causes. Frequently, this is a sign of improper storage or the use of certain raw materials and ingredients. Using our specialized devices, we offer the identification of unwanted aromas.
We can advise you on the various applications of systematized and standardized tests, and conduct these on your behalf.
