Our food microbiology testing lab boasts 32 SANAS accredited methods in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and employs the services of qualified scientists and technicians.
We conduct a full range of Microbiological analyses on raw foodstuffs, cosmetics, ingredients, processed foods and food service products, for both human and animal consumption. We test surface swabs, hand swabs and water samples. We are able to collect or perform the sampling through our hygiene consultants.
We constantly strive to extend our scope of testing to fulfil the needs of our clients and introduce methods and high-tech instruments to reduce the turnaround times of results. FCS makes use of the VIDAS® immunoassay system, which offers rapid and accurate detection of food pathogens in South Africa.
