Analysis and Testing

By Campden BRI

Support with compliance, quality and safety assurance through analysis of the chemical, microbiological, physical and sensory properties of food and drink materials.

Get the right result - make the right decision

Reliable analytical results are essential for many of the day-to-day and strategic business decisions that food and drinks companies face. Making the right decision requires the right result. Our wide ranging services are underpinned by extensive method development and validation - giving you access to what you need.

Problem micro-organisms - Pathogens, spoilage organisms, yeasts and moulds, disinfectants and sanitizer efficacy, challenge testing and shelf-life, method development and validation, rapid methods

Contaminants - Foreign bodies (e.g. metal, plastic, glass, insects), residues, mycotoxins, metals, environmental pollutants, illegal compounds (e.g. dyes, melamine), taints, allergens, natural toxicants

Composition and authenticity - Fats, proteins, carbohydrates, fibre, energy, vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and other compounds, species of origin, variety identification, geographical origin

Sensory analysis and quality - Sensory analysis for product characterisation, product benchmarking, consumer panel testing, instrumental and image analysis, flavour and taint, spoilage problems (e.g. rancidity, staling)

Ingredients and raw materials - physical properties (e.g. rheology), raw material suitability, ingredient performance (e.g. enzymes, oils, egg, flour)

Packaging properties - plastic, metal, glass, paper, suitability and strength, integrity and seals, migration (global and specific)
