Problem Solving & Special Investigations

Sidebar Image

Our consulting and problem-solving capabilities clearly distinguish Eurofins SFA 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 challenging and customized analyses on other products for problem-solving, compliance, legal or evaluation purposes. Our capabilities can be expanded and/or tailored to meet most customer needs.
