An important component of determining the stability or shelf life of your products is Microbial analysis. Throughout the course of your study, Eurofins can provide analysis of spoilage and indicator organisms that may affect the safety and quality of your products using industry appropriate methods. Eurofins can also provide analysis of probiotic levels to ensure they are shelf stable and meet label claims throughout the life of the product.
In addition to your standard Microbiology tests, we can also analyze the pH and water activity of your product over time as these chemical aspects of the product have effects on the Microbial load.
