Food process contaminants emerge during food processing; high-temperature cooking, grilling, smoking, fermentation, etc. Ensure your products' safety with our established protocols below:

  • Acrylamide
  • Bisphenol A
  • Ethyl Carbamate

The five-second rule that you hold dear since childhood is put to test. This test focuses on two techniques – counting the bacterial population as the measure of quality and detection of specific microorganisms as the measure of foodborne disease hazard.                      

Toxicology Evaluation

 Measure the effects of toxicants in the food products to the human's biological system.

  • 3T3 NRU Cytotoxicity Study
  • In vitro Eye Irritation
  • Acute Oral Toxicity (Classic Method)
