Do you need to know what is inside your products? We can tell you. We’re always happy to provide you with a quotation for your specific analytical problem.

Microbiological services

The microbiological status of foodstuffs and other product groups is a key parameter for their safety and quality assessment. Using classic cultivation methods and microscopy, we can solve your analytical problem in this area. In order to verify specific test parameters more efficiently, especially those of pathogenic germs, we use cutting-edge molecular biological methods such as real-time PCR. We would be happy to send you a tailored quote to solve your specific problem.
