The expertise of our agri-food consulting group allows us to take action on food-based toxic infections, result interpretation, shelf life protocol development, as well as professional investigation and support services for matters related to food microbiology.
Our laboratory teams work evenings and weekends to ensure that you have faster access to your analysis results. Our clients can obtain results via the Internet. We can also pick up your samples.
We conduct full microbiological testing of various food categories such as ingredients, raw fruits and vegetables, raw meat and poultry, dairy products, eggs, processed foods, as well as various categories of ready-to-eat foods (RTE). We also conduct microbiological tests of environmental swab samples to validate the effectiveness of the cleaning procedures of your equipment, structures, drains, etc.
We use rapid selective detection methods, such as immunology tests (e.g. Vidas) and PCR tests (e.g. BAX) that scan for micro-organisms through DNA detection or immunological characteristics. These technologies allow our laboratories to detect very small numbers of micro-organisms targeted in a sample, thus ensuring a better protection of the public.
Microbiological tests of these categories can vary depending on the food tested. This is not the exhaustive list. We can conduct these tests, advise you and guide you based on each specific product.
