Food Microbiology Quality Testing

Microchem routinely provides food microbiology, food safety and food quality testing. Over 1600 food microbiology samples are submitted to the food testing laboratory in a week, encompassing analysis for a wide range of microbial spoilage, bacteria and indicator organisms in a variety of food products, raw materials, finished products and ingredients.

Some of the food microbiology or micro-organism laboratory tests that food manufacturers may be required to test for are:
  • Total Viable Count (TVC)
  • Enterobacteriaceae
  • Aerobic & Anaerobic Plate Count (APC)
  • Aerobic Colony Count (ACC)
  • Coliforms
  • Enterococci
  • E.coli
  • Staphylococcus Aureus
  • Bacillus
  • Clostridium Perfringens
  • Lactic Acid Bacteria
  • Pseudomonas
  • Yeasts and Moulds

To enable Microchem to test for such an extensive range of microbiological analysis, we have continued to invest in automated systems that can offer rapid microbiological analysis that is SANAS accredited, and are now available to process customer’s samples.

This automation allows the microbiology food testing laboratories to cope with influxes and fluctuations of sample numbers, providing a greater degree of reproducibility of test results.

Information and testing services for other pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella and Listeria can be found on the Pathogen Determination page.

We pride ourselves on customer service and value all of our customers.
