Following several recent food contamination incidents and mislabeling of food products, the analysis of products and ingredients for human and livestock consumption is likely to see increased demand as new regulations are introduced to protect consumers.
Speedy and reliable analysis is required to ensure timely clearance of sometimes-perishable products for shipment and sale. Automation can help manage the workload and keep analysis records for creating reports according to regulations.
For cosmetics and certain medicinal products, specific tests are required to clear the product for sale. These tests can include bioburden testing, pyrogen testing as well as stability testing.
