Quality and safety testing for food and beverage

To ensure quality, authenticity and safety, manufacturers of foods and beverages need to perform a wide range of tests on their products. Many of these tests are based around ELISA, which are used in areas as diverse as checking for the presence of bacterial endotoxins, mycotoxins, various allergens, growth promoter hormones and antibiotics, and for meat species identification. Other absorbance tests can also be used to quantify levels of substances within foods – such as sugars, phenols, and acids.

Microplate readers are widely used in research, drug discovery, bioassay validation, quality control, and manufacturing processes in the pharmaceutical, biotech, food and beverage, and academic industries. They provide rapid and sensitive measurements of a variety of analytes across a wide range of concentrations for a wide range of assays including ELISAs, microbial growth, detection of key compounds and contaminants, and protein quantitation.
