Food packaging testing
The testing labs provide a comprehensive solution for packing of foods including food contact testing, migration testing, saliva testing, hazardous material testing and many more. The laboratory assesses the necessary information like manufacturing date, expiry date, ingredients and compositions concerning the product.
Genetically modified organism detection
