Microbiological testing

Infections of food with microorganisms or their toxins are currently the most common cause of food poisoning. Pursuant to the applicable law, the food producer is obliged to ensure the appropriate quality and safety of the food in order to minimize the risk of a hazard factor, including microbiological.

The FoodSector laboratory offers accredited microbiological tests. The subject of research are microorganisms that determine food safety and those that are an indicator of the hygiene of the process.

Research methods are based on standards, among others PN-EN, ISO and carried out with the use of specialized, state-of-the-art equipment in order to most accurately determine the level of microbial contamination during the production process.

In the microbiology laboratory, we conduct accredited microbiological analyzes for you, including:

      • Number of sulfate reducing bacteria (IV) growing in anaerobic conditions – PN-ISO 15213: 2005,
      • Number of coliform bacteria – PN-ISO 4832: 2007,
