We help identify your product issues in order to prevent microbes causing odours, stains and material degradation.
WHAT IS PRODUCT TESTING?
BioLabTests can undertake microbiological product testing to establish the presence of microbes contaminating products.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Our product testing applies to any company who wishes to see whether or how much bacteria, yeast or fungi are contaminating a product. For example, companies who are having issues with visual microbial growth on their product, which can potentially lead to odour forming, staining, material degradation or product failure.
WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?
Our team of experienced microbiologists can take samples from products and perform appropriate tests on those samples. For example, it may be necessary to detect and identify bacteria present in the sample or determine the number of contaminating cells per unit volume of sample. Swabs can also be provided for on-site checks. We will provide you with a straightforward, confidential report presenting the test results. If required, our team will be available to discuss your results in order to clarify your position.
WHAT WILL IT ACHIEVE?
Our product testing can determine whether a product is contaminated with microbes and if so what the identity and amount of the contaminant is.
We used BioLabTests’ services for the first time to prove efficacy of our cleaning and sanitising agents through swab testing. The team were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. We were very pleased with the prompt, polite and efficient service we received.
