To minimize health risks, protect your food and feed products from bacterial contamination, and safeguard your company against litigation, you need to adhere to rigorous food and feed safety standards. SGS can help you undertake such a monitoring program, confirming the presence of pathogens through screening and identification.
Using official Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved methods, our microbial identification and microbial analysis procedures highlight microbial contamination such as Escherichia coli (commonly known as E. coli), E. coli 0157:H7, Salmonella or Listeria. We can determine the existence of microbial contamination using a standardized polymerase chain reaction (PCR) protocol, or the more traditional method of plate testing and culture identification.
Approved and accredited laboratories
Our microbial analysis laboratories operate under strict guidelines and are accredited to ISO 17025 utilizing official, validated methods. Staffed by scientists and technicians with years of experience – as well as degrees in chemistry, microbiology and agronomy – our labs have also earned the approval of several feed and food associations. In short, this means that we adhere to the highest industry standards when it comes to the detection of microbial contamination.
