Innovative testing techniques meets world-class facilities and equipment

Microchem performs analyses of all routine indicator organisms and major bacterial pathogens that may threaten your product safety and quality. Analyses offered covers a wide range of microbial spoilage bacteria, indicator organisms and pathogenic organisms in a variety of raw materials, ingredients and food products.

Why perform microbiological testing of food products?

Any food or beverage company can benefit from microbial analysis of their food products. Whether your product will be used as an ingredient or consumed directly by consumers, prepared at home or in a restaurant, it is critical to ensure that you are well within acceptable guidelines as you manufacture foods and beverages that are safe for consumers.

To enable Microchem to test for such an extensive range of microbiological analyses, we have continued to invest in automated systems and rapid techniques that can offer rapid microbiological analyses that are SANAS accredited and are now available to process client’s samples.

This automation allows our microbiology food testing laboratories to cope with influxes and fluctuations of sample numbers, providing a greater degree of reproducibility of test results.

Information and testing services for other pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella and Listeria can be found on the Pathogen Determination page.
