Microbial Contaminants

Eurofins BioDiagnostics experts help customers resolve regulatory compliance, FDA detention, and persistent contamination issues. We validate process and environmental controls, and help develop food safety management programs (HACCP, GMP, SSOP, FSMA, and EMP).

Our state-of-the-art laboratories utilize the latest microbiology testing technologies that provide the robustness and sensitivity needed to rapidly quantify and detect pathogenic, spoilage, and probiotic microorganisms.

With substantial experience across all product categories, we deploy multiple advanced molecular methods for routine microbiology testing, including product screening and in-depth strain identification.
• Aerobic Plate Count
• Yeast & Mold
• Shiga toxin E. Coli
• Salmonella
• Aspergillus species A. fumigatus, A. flavus, A. niger, and A. terreus

Methods for Microbial Contaminants:
• Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) techniques to increase detection sensitivity and identify pathogens, toxins, yeasts, and molds
