Food Microbiology Testing

Anresco offers a full range of food microbiological testing and services. Our food quality testing services include routine QA testing, FDA Detention Without Physical Examination (DWPE) testing, shelf life studies, inoculation challenge studies, validations of food safety programs (e.g. for compliance with HACCP), and FSMA mandated environmental testing. Our food quality microbiological testing services ensure the safe consumption of a variety of perishable food products.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that roughly 48 million Americans contract food poisoning each year. 128,000 of which are hospitalized and 3,000 of which die. The reduction of microbial contamination was a point of emphasis of the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 (FSMA), which required many manufacturers to establish “preventative control” systems closely modeled after HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) and increase regular food microbiological testing for quality assurance purposes.
