Contaminants and Residues
GMO Analysis

A genetically modified organism (GMO) is an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Many countries around the world have enacted laws to restrict the levels of GMOs in food products. These commonly include soybean and maize. 

Manufacturers in the food and feed sectors are frequently required to manage the traceability of items of GMO origin throughout the entire production chain and to define the labeling requirements for products containing them.

GMO Analysis
Allergen Testing

To help manufacturers verify control programs and meet customer and regulatory requirements, our company provides qualitative and/or quantitative testing services for several food matrices, process samples, product samples, raw materials and finished products utilizing a range of technologies including PCR ELISA.

Some of the most common allergens are milk, eggs, soybeans, fish, peanuts, nuts, shellfish/crustaceans and gluten. Our experts offer experience and insight into the global and regional regulations concerning all allergens in food products.

Allergen Testing
Authenticity Testing

Recent events have shown that there were numerous incidences of fraud in the food chain. The food industry was shaken by the European-wide horse-meat crisis in 2013 and the Oceana report on fish mislabelling. Our premier goal is to protect its customers from fraud and consequently brand damage. This is done by significantly enhancing our molecular biological and immunological capabilities to include all economically relevant species.
