Everything needed for food, beverage and agricultural laboratories

11 de December de 2023

Here at Scharlab, we have been supplying food, beverage and agricultural laboratories since our beginnings in 1949. Laboratories in this sector are involved in the research, development and quality control of food products and play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and quality of foods that reach the consumer.

Food laboratories perform a range of tests to guarantee food safety and quality. These tests are an essential part of compliance with quality standards and ensure that food products are safe for human consumption. Some typical tests carried out in a food laboratory include: microbiological, chemical and contaminant analysis, testing for drug and pesticide residues, allergen testing and shelf-life studies.

Scharlab offers a wide range of solutions for food, beverage and agricultural laboratories.

QuEChERS extraction kits

QuEChERS is a quick, easy, cheap, effective, rugged and safe method developed for extracting multiple residues from fruits and vegetables, which works by combining two stages: extraction and dispersion. QuEChERS is now also used to extract components from a wide variety of matrices, including milk, meat, fish, liver, honey, wine and soils.

Solvents for gas chromatography (GC) analysis of ultra-trace and pesticides

The gas chromatography (GC) solvents used in pesticide and ultra-trace analysis are highly purified products, suitable for the extraction and concentration of food and beverage samples.

Pesticide standards

Certified organic standards are essential for controlling residues in food and beverages. Scharlab offers ready-to-use standard solutions, standard mixtures and pure standards, prepared and tested at ISO 17025 and ISO 17034 accredited laboratories. Made-to-measure mixtures of standards can also be prepared depending on the needs of each laboratory.

Broths in Flexibags

Ready-to-use broths in Flexibag format provide considerable savings in both time and laboratory resources. They are particularly useful in food laboratories that test for pathogens (Salmonella, Listeria, Coliforms, E. coli, Enterobacteriaceae, Staphylococcus, Staphylococcus aureus, Clostridia).

Scharlau Nutsche reactor

Nucha reactors offer an innovative solution for filtration and drying challenges in the food, beverage and agricultural industries. They filter, wash, resuspend and dry in a single process, improving quality and reducing operating times. Ideal when working with pure substances using inert materials for controlled environments. Versatility of use in pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and solid phase synthesis.

These are just some of the products and services available for food, beverage and agricultural laboratories. For more information or to enquire about other products or services, please write to helpdesk@scharlab.com.
