Food Microbiology

Our Food Microbiology laboratory is being developed and improved to undertake wide range of tests covering pathogens and spoilage organisms in food, food ingredients and water. We can identify unknown microorganisms and classify them to species level and detect food pathogens using rapid methods. We can perform;

SC200 Food Microbiology

  • Microbiological analysis of food, ingredients and water
  • Investigation of microbial contamination incidents
  • Microorganism identification
  • Rapid microbiological methods (Testing for the presence of pathogens such as Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli)
  • Testing for Staphylococcal enterotoxin

With the current increased demand for processed food and food products for human and animal use the microbial quality of these products is of great importance. Aqualytic is in the process of establishing State-Of -The-Art Aflatoxin and Allergen Technology Testing Laboratories. The scope matrix is:-
