Exceed your food analysis requirements

The important job of characterizing food properties in today’s modern laboratory—from pesticide residues analysis, mycotoxin analysis, and persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to food labeling—helps ensure high-quality and safe food products and consumer confidence. However, scientists ensuring our food safety and quality face an increasing number of analytical testing challenges as new and stricter regulations are enforced.

We offer a broad range of innovative Thermo Scientific chromatography, mass spectrometry, laboratory equipment and plasticware products for food safety analysis. Our GC-MS and LC-MS systems, for example, provide you with complete end-to-end food analysis workflow solutions. Along with our educational resources, you can put your focus where it should be—delivering safe, high-quality food products.
