Food Safety & Quality

OF

Food is what nourishes, comforts, and sustains us – and it’s up to food testing laboratories to protect the quality and ensure the safety of an increasingly global food supply chain. What’s actually in our food products? Are our raw ingredients safe? Are our families getting the nutrition they need from the foods we put on the table? Answering these concerns requires labs that run more efficiently and are prepared to meet stringent, ever-changing regulations. From helping you develop and confirm certificates of analysis to conducting internal quality studies of raw, in-process, and finished products, to meet these goals is what our food safety and quality solutions are all about.

Organic Toxins

Mycotoxins, such as aflatoxins, in food are extremely harmful to both humans and animals. Persistent organic pollutants (POPs), like PAHs and dioxins, may contaminate the food supply through intentional and inadvertent chemical production. Once they enter the environment, these chemicals are known to contaminate food products through air or water. To ensure food safety you need to effectively test for these dangerous toxins.

Pesticides and Residues

Pesticides contaminate many foods – especially fruits and vegetables – during the growing season through soil, water, and air indirectly or directly. With residual levels regulated for human health and safety, short analytical turnaround times are critical to providing the necessary information required to make rapid decisions about food safely. For rapid screening of food matrices to detect the presence of pesticides residues, our chromatographic technologies are trusted throughout the industry.

Nutritional Analysis

For accurate analysis of the nutritional content in food products and compliance with labeling regulations, food producers around the world turn to analytical solutions from PerkinElmer and Perten (a PerkinElmer company).

Both organic components (such as protein) and inorganic components (such as iron and calcium) can be rapidly measured with our instrumentation. The extended dynamic range capabilities of our category-leading inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP-MS) — providing nine orders of magnitude — are ideal for measuring macro-level nutritional elements such as Mg, K, and Na.

Our instruments help food companies ensure that ingredients meet Certificate of Analysis (COA) specifications, guaranteeing proper consistency and nutritional levels. They also support the confirmation of food label claims, making sure that the nutritional content in the food matches what is stated on the product label. Applications span a wide range from infant formula to highly-processed food products.

With precision measurement capability and rapid turnaround speeds, our analytical solutions are the preferred option for obtaining the nutritional information required in the food industry.

Heavy Metals

Detect and measure levels of heavy metals that may cause cancer, neurological issues and cardiovascular disease when consumed. We offer standard methods to:

  • Quantify the level of arsenic in baby foods and juices
  • Test for the presence of lead, mercury, and other dangerous metals in nutraceuticals
  • Screen for cadmium in farmed fish and aquaculture feeds
  • Meet regulatory requirements limiting nickel in all areas of the food and beverage industries

Our proven ICP-OES and ICP-MS instrumentation for heavy metal detection and analysis eliminates interferences between elements, allowing scientists to process more samples with greater speed while meeting regulated detection levels.
