Microbiology Testing

Microbiology Testing Inquiry

Lifeasible is a leading partner of microbiology testing in the food industry. The purpose of the microbiological testing is to detect and restrict harmful microorganisms. As an essential approach for the evaluation of food integrity/spoilage, as well as for the determination of shelf life, microbiological testing is a pivotal step in food manufacturing, which ensures food safety and protects the public from potential diseases.

Microbiology Testing

Our food microbiology laboratory, which is accredited by the ISO/IEC 17025 general requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories, provides microbiological analysis services in support of your food quality control programs. The microbiological testing portfolio includes analytical services for the detection of pathogenic microbes and spoilage organisms, as well as for the identification and classification of unknown microorganisms. Using the latest technologies, our professional and dedicated teams of microbiologists will help you obtain microbiological testing results with high accuracy, high reliability and short turnaround time.

  • Microbiological culturing techniques. Microbiological culturing is a traditional method for microbiological testing of foods. Both liquid and solid growth medium can be employed to enhance the microbial growth. Usually, microscopes are used to detect microbes in cultures, and biochemical and serological techniques are utilized to differentiate various organisms.
  • Oligonucleotide DNA probing. This test is based on the hybridization of a DNA probe with the target nucleic acid (frequently a gene for toxin production or a species-specific 16S rRNA sequence) which is unique to the organisms been tested.
  • Polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This technique is a rapid microbiological testing method and is more applicable when small numbers of a particular microbe are present. This method is based on the specific recognition of DNA or RNA fragments that are unique to the target microorganism.

With our experience, expertise and cutting-edge facilities, we can perform tests for a wide range of food microorganisms, which include, but not limited to:
