Microbiology Testing

Tests to detect biological pathogens, disease-causing bacteria, and other toxins

Microbiological Testing with Integrated Labs

What is Microbiological Testing?
Microorganisms are naturally present in foods and play a significant role in preservation and quality. Each of these micro-organisms can survive and grow and affects foods in areas of spoilage or food-borne illness.

Under the microbiological testing of food, we examine microscopic organisms that could be a single cell, multiple cells, or without cell.

Why is Microbiological Testing Important?
Microbial food and beverage testing is a process to identify and determine pathogen or microorganism contamination levels during the manufacturing process and in final consumer products to ensure consumer safety, prevent brand desecration, and minimize costly mitigation following failed inspections.
Microbiology Testing Available:

Aerobic Plate Count

General plate counts indicate microorganism levels in a product and reveal sanitation levels in the production process. APC testing can also be used in Shelf-life studies.

E. coli/ Coliform Count

Specific plate counts indicate fecal contamination and general sanitation in ground beef and unpasteurized juice products.

Rapid Yeast and Mold

Plate counts indicate the presence of yeast and molds, used indication of sanitation, and proper material storage in raw materials.

Staphylococcus

Plate counts for the presence of Staphylococcus aureus can indicate poor sanitation. The presence of Staphylococcus aureus can lead to severe food poisoning.

Salmonella Motility

1-2 Test that tests for the presence of motile salmonella. The presence of salmonella can indicate improper processing or heat treatment in the manufacturing process of meat, poultry, vegetables, and dairy products.

Environmental Swabbing

Environmental swabbing can be used to determine sanitation effectiveness and as an investigative tool to help pinpoint problem areas in a production facility.
