This product line includes all the equipment needed to have an operable food or beverage testing laboratory. Food labs can benefit significantly from investing in this product line.

ABOUT OUR FOOD & BEVERAGE LINE

Food and Beverage testing includes the processes and tests conducted throughout every food and beverage production step to ensure that all ingredients and material are safe for consumption. Food testing is essential for many reasons, including but not limited to:

  • US FDA Approval
  • Certificate of Approval (COA)
  • Pesticide/Chemical Contamination
  • Unknown Particles in Beverages
  • Off-color/Off-odor
  • Other food safety standards
  • Ensuring marketing claims

F&B Testing ranges from testing the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR testing) in raw materials to quality assurance (QA) testing during and after production. Each of these test works to ensure food authenticity and the provision of safe products to customers. Tests for food safety are imperative when it comes to preparing food products for consumer consumption.
