FOOD ANALYTICAL TECHNOLOGIES
Providing quality control, nutritional information, safety studies and consultancy.
FAT offers microbiological analysis on environmental swabs and food products. Detection of pathogens for positive release, counting of bacteria, yeasts and molds and shelf-life testing
Safeguarding consistent quality is important when working with organic raw materials. FAT can assist in method development and tailor-made analytical support.
With increasing consumer awareness nutritional information is more important than ever. FAT is able to determine the big 8 for labeling purposes.
OTHER TESTS WE OFFER
- Sensory Evaluation with E-nose
- Oxidative Studies
SENSORY EVALUATION WITH E-NOSE
The Alpha-Mos Heracles Neo Electronic nose is a high-end analytical device which is able to perform sensory analysis based on smell. This device detects volatile aroma’s for sensory evaluation, quality control, shelf-life control, and standardization of quality.
This device is equipped with an autosampler to speed up analysis throughput. Thanks to its numerous applications, its high precision, and ease of use, control the sensory profile of your products to better satisfy your customers.
Its unique software is equipped with a vast database that holds more than 99.000 chemical compounds, 2000 compounds with related sensory notes and odour attributes, and 1800 molecules with human odor detection threshold.
The oxidation stability tests performed with the OXITEST reactor accelerate the oxidation process that in normal conditions can last weeks or months and provide fast, accurate, and reliable results for Food & Feed, Cosmetic, Pharma, and Petrochemical industries. This method is a proven alternative for chemical methods such as iodine, peroxide, and TOTOX value.
The oxitest can be applied in a multitude of experiments such as:
- Quality control of raw materials and ingredients.
- The effect of transportation on goods.
- Storage time studies.
- Product development and behavior.
- Formula Optimization.
- Ingredient and alternative ingredients testing.
- Process optimization.
- Packaging study and alternative packaging comparison.

Prep Samples of min 100g each
For best results and accurate measurement, please provide 100g per sample and label them clearly. Contact us to direct in case you have questions on this via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Prepare samples well for shipment:
Make sure you pack samples in suitable and well-sealed containers. Make sure to use sterile sample containers for microbiology must and ship samples for microbiology as fast as possible, preferably within 48 hours.
Receive Test Results
Upon receipt of samples and payment, we Food Analytical Technology tests your samples at the highest standards and share end-results immediately upon test completion.
Different types of analysis are performed on a daily basis to determine if pathogens are present in your production facility or food products. We assist in improving and validating your process hygiene protocols and assist in positive release testing.
Batches that require positive release before entering the consumer market require flexibility and speed. By using the most advanced techniques we can detect pathogens and give positive release within 48 hours!
Using swabs we test your food facility. Together we can improve your sampling plan and process hygiene. On request, we train your staff to improve cleaning and swab techniques.
One of the most dangerous pathogens is L. mono. We are able to detect this pathogen and advice on the prevention of contamination.
COLONY FORMING UNITS (CFU)
Different solutions for different applications. Our lab can assist in all your needs.
Proximate analysis for labeling and quality control.
Proximate analysis determines whether food items are safe for human and animal consumption. For livestock, feed is tested to ensure that it contains enough protein, fats, and carbohydrates for healthy animals. In human food, nutrient levels are tested to determine the levels of each within the product, as well as such things as protein, fats, and carbohydrates.
What can we offer:
- Dry matter
- Protein content
- Fat content
- Dietary fiber content
- Carbohydrate content
- Salt content
- Ash content
All methods follow AOAC or ISO procedures.
FDA COMPLIANT LABELING
For the purpose of labeling or as quality, marker FAT can determine the nutritional value of different food and feed products.
- For food, it is possible to measure fat, dietary and crude fiber, protein, moisture, salt, energy content and carbohydrate content.
- For animal feed, it is possible to perform the Weende analysis or the modified Weende analysis according to van Soest.
