Other Honey Testing
We can offer a range of other tesing to cover virtually any test requirement desired. Some of the more frequently requested test subjects are detailed below but these are by no means exhaustive.
Although honey can generally be considered as microbiologically ‘inert’, testing may be required – total viable count (TVC), aerobic spore formers plus yeasts & moulds as a minimum. Many other organisms can be offered if required.
We can offer cost-competitive low-level analysis of virtually any mineral element, including popular elements such as copper, magnesium, zinc, sodium, potassium, iron, phosphorus and selenium.
Nutritional Labelling Analysis
Analytical determination of macro- and micro- nutrients in a food product for the substantiation of labelling claims is a key requirement of the food industry. We can offer the required tests – total fat and fatty acid profile, moisture, carbohydrate, protein, fibre, ash, sodium/salt and energy at competitive prices.
The presence of undeclared allergens in foods has become a major issue for many sectors of the food industry. We can offer state-of-the-art ELISA and PCR based tests to test for many allergens in a wide range of foods and drink.
Genetically modified material (GMO)
We can offer tests utilising state-of-the-art PCR technology for the detection of genetically modified material in a food product.
