Microbiology Laboratory

In the microbiology field, we run more than 75,000 tests on a catalogue of more than 30 different test parameters. To do so, we are equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and systems that enable us to process a very high volume of samples, obtaining maximum reliability in a very short period of time. Thanks to this, we can notify our clients immediately if we detect any event that might affect their products.

  • Detection of pathogens
  • Detection of hygiene indicators
  • Detection of microorganisms of industrial interest (probiotics)
  • Environmental sampling and testing (surfaces, water, air)

Test Devices

The traditional methods have been replaced by fast, highly specific methods for obtaining results in a shorter timescale. Given below is a brief description of some of our most important equipment and tests:

POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION (PCR). DETECTION OF SALMONELLA; AT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY LEVEL
Unequivocal identification
More sensitive and specific than any other established technique
After the pre-enrichment, results in 24h
TEMPO AUTOMATED DETECTION AND COUNTING OF AEROBIC MESOPHILIC FLORA AND COLIFORMS
Avoiding human error
Coliforms in 24h
Aerobic mesophiles in 48h
VIDAS AUTOMATIC MULTIPARAMETRIC ANALYZER FOR PATHOGENS DETERMINATION
Fast and reliable: 24h.
Traditional methods: 7 days.
