Our consulting and problem-solving capabilities clearly distinguish our laboratory from those that provide only routine services.

In our century-plus of history, we have been called upon to solve problems in all of our areas of specialization. Our qualifications and experience lead us to welcome a challenge.

In addition to our food and environmental testing specialties, we perform a variety of analyses on other products for compliance or evaluation purposes. Our capabilities can be expanded to meet any and all customer needs.

“A client was observing stains on their bottles post production. The client provided potential sources for the stain and we characterized the material by FTIR. In conjunction, we tested the stain for reducing sugars using a fehlings test. Based on this analysis we were able to determine the stains were sugar related.”
