To ensure that your food and feed products are fit for consumption, you need to test for specific contaminants throughout the value chain.

For example, in concentrated levels, melamine, antibiotics and hormones can be harmful to animals and humans. Only thorough contaminants testing will determine if they – and other specific contaminants – are present. After finding such impurities, you can eliminate the relevant goods from the production and distribution chain.

Our contaminants monitoring services use the latest testing methods, including liquid chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (LC MSMS), gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC MS) and polymer chain reaction (PCR).

Approved and accredited laboratories

Our contaminants testing laboratories operate under strict guidelines and are ISO 17025 and ISO 9001:2008 accredited. 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 associations. This means that our contaminant testing and contaminant monitoring services adhere to the highest industry standards.

To find out how our contaminants testing services can protect the safety of your food and feed products, minimize health risks and safeguard your company against possible litigation, contact SGS now.
