Microbiology and Residues Testing Inquiry

With rapid development of animal husbandry, feed as one of the supporting industries, is estimated to generate over $400 billion annually in more than 130 countries. Consumption of animal product is predicted to increase by 70% within next 30 years, while feed industry is accordingly expanding to meet the growing demand. However, about 23% feed is produced and mixed by private farms which lack systematic regulations. In this circumstance, the safety of feed is rendered one of principle challenges which associated with food safety, human health, and economic sustainability.

Feed microbiology inspection is essential for quality control. Improper processing, storage or transportation may lead to increasing risk of microbial contamination in feed. Microorganisms can be ingested directly with contaminated feed, resulting in health-threatening conditions on animals. Some also produce harmful by-products which contribute to food borne diseases.    On the other hand, unrestricted use of supplemental hormones and antibiotics in feed leads to veterinary drug residues, causing substantial and unpredictable consequences on human health and environment.

Lifeasible is a leading company with well-established microbiology and residues testing laboratories accredited by ISO/IEC 17025. We provide sensitive and rapid detections to help you with identifications of microbiological comtaminations and harmful chemical residues in feed, so as to ensure feed safety, and further secure livestock products and human health. Our innovative and advanced technology supports reliable monitor of feed quality. Microbial detection in feed mainly include total bacteria detection, Escherichia coli group detection, Salmonella detection and total mold detection. Residue detection mainly include spectrophotometer, GC/MS, HPLC and immunoassay.

Microbiology testing

A wide range of microbes are naturally present in feed. Some bacteria or fungi may have beneficial effects to farm animals, whereas a number of them are the source of contaminants. Microbial contamination of the feed can bring a variety of hazards. Microbial reproduction produces unusual color and irritant substances which significantly compromises the appearance, taste and palatability of feed. Meanwhile, consumption of nutrients by rapid microbial propagation deprives the available nutrients for feeding livestocks. Major adverse effects are accumulation of endotoxins or exotoxins by certain bacteria, and mycotoxins produced by particular species and strains of fungi. Lifeasible provides comprehensive detections, including but not limited to total bacteria detection, Escherichia coli group detection, Salmonella detection and total mold detection.

Residues Testing

Abusive or improper use of pesticides, herbicides and veterinary drugs during the production of feed is the main reason for chemical residues. Persistent residues present in feed are ingested by livestock and still remain in terminal animal product. Hazardous residues can not only cause tremendous economic losses to livestock industry, but also bring health threaten to humans. Carcinogenic teratogenic mutations, allergic reactions and chronic toxicity are associated with pesticide or drug residues in food source. Lifeasible provides reliable analysis of a wide range of residues, including clenbuterol hydrochloride, zearalenone, sulfonamides, albuterol, et al.

Lifeasible provides you with technical advice, project design, proposal optimization, and project implementation services. We will help you develop customized solutions to analyze microbiology and residues in feed. We guarantee the quality of the testing with affordable budget and a short turnaround time.
