Our USA food testing laboratories are ISO 17025 accredited and are strategically located to effectively and efficiently service local, regional and international clients.
Intertek has a network of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities based in the US which provide cutting edge food testing and analysis services.
Our team of experts can assist with all your food, nutritional supplement, functional/nutraceutical foods and ingredient testing requirements, including microbiology, molecular biological, chemical and biochemical testing of active ingredient analysis, nutritional analysis, shelf life testing, label reviews/validation, allergens, contaminants, method development, supplement product services, and cosmetics and natural cosmetics analytical services.
We provide accurate results in fast turnaround times, which can be in as little as 24 hours for some services.
The accurate and reliable detection of allergens ensures the safety and quality of your products and processes, verifies food properties for labelling, and ultimately safeguards your brand image.
From our state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, our world-class technicians use cutting edge technology to accurately determine the presence of allergens, even at very low levels.
Our laboratories can test for the majority of allergenic ingredients as listed in the Food Allergen Labelling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 (FALCPA) on the provision of food information to consumers.
We provide analytical method development on multiple platforms specific to your testing requirements.
We offer in-depth scientific and technical expertise in analytical chemistry, biochemistry, plant biology, microbiology, food and pharmaceutical science for the perfect solution to your analytical needs.
The increase use of nutritional ingredients and other active chemicals in functional foods and sports drinks demand rigorous analytical tests for label and safety claims. We offer an extensive testing experience from product development and label claims to quality monitoring.
The complex formulation of nutrients (e.g. vitamins and minerals) in diverse products present challenges in their accurate determination. Our expert analytical chemistry testing of vitamins and minerals uses highly sensitive techniques in accordance with recommended methods including USP, AAOAC, and others.
Our world-class specialists carry out microbiology testing for the full range of potentially harmful food-borne micro-organisms, including pathogens like Salmonella, E.coli and Listeria, along with spoilage organisms such as Yeasts and Moulds.
Operating 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, you can benefit from our fast turnaround times, and reliable results. Our team of experts can also guide you through the wealth of regulations so that your customers, products and brand are protected.
Natural and nutraceutical products are an extremely diverse group of nutritional supplements. Many of these natural ingredients are complex in chemistry and less well characterised than conventional active pharmaceutical chemicals.
The formulation of nutraceutical products has become more complex in order to meet the needs of specific health conditions. Our laboratories have extensive experience in the chemistry of natural products. Specifically, our focus has been on research, identification and quantification of the various secondary natural and synthetic compounds by a variety of key techniques such as LC/MS/MS, GC/MS and HPLC.
Given the complexity of factors contributing to the shelf life of food, our experts can offer a bespoke service which is tailor-made to the composition of your products, storage and packaging.
Therefore, you can be sure of a high quality, cost effective service which delivers accurate test results that will help to demonstrate compliance with statutory requirements.
