Food & Beverage Analysis

Simplify Sample Prep, and Increase Speed and Sensitivity

Analytical testing is used throughout the production of our worldwide food supply; from raw materials and ingredients, to finished and packaged goods. This testing primarily serves two purposes; to determine nutritional value and quality, and also to ensure security. We have developed, and continue to develop, specialized products that allow food analysts to simplify sample prep, and increase speed and sensitivity for many food and beverage applications.

Food Composition / Nutritional Labeling
  • For quality control and/or nutritional labeling purposes
  • Areas of interest include carbohydrates, fats, proteins, nutraceuticals/antioxidants, vitamins, organic acids, minerals, flavors & fragrances, artificial sweeteners, preservatives, dyes, moisture content, genetically modified organisms (GMO), and physical characteristics

Food Safety
  • To monitor for the presence of compounds that are not desired
  • Areas of interest include microbiology quality control, pesticides, veterinary drugs, mycotoxins, allergens, dioxins, perchlorate, phycotoxins, phytochemicals, heavy metals, phthalate esters, bisphenol A, PFOA/PFOS, semicarbazide, benzene, nitrosamines, furans, PAHs, acrylamide, 3-MCPD, and adulterants

Beverage Testing
  • Liquid, making sample preparation often much simpler
  • Additionally, there are some sample preparation devices that are more amenable to liquids

We also offer a substantial offering of matrix-based certified reference materials (CRMs) to allow analysts to perform demonstration of proficiency studies.
