Test Description

Microbiological contamination of food can cause a range of sickness symptoms, the most extreme of which can result in hospitalisation, contamination can also cause food spoilage. Contamination can result from raw ingredients, poor sanitation or hygiene practices, or inappropriate storage conditions.

This quantitative proficiency test requires an Aerobic Plate Count in milk powder, and can assess your testing ability. Our Food Microbiology proficiency test samples combine the test organisms into real food matrices or swabs, together with background flora to fully represent real-world samples.

Milk powder is used within a plethora of foodstuffs, from processed foods to individual products sold to the consumer. As such there may be an increased strain on global supply chains to satisfy consumer demand. This can lead to a number of challenges including storage issues that may not be overcome by suppliers and require your effective testing measures to highlight.

Aerobic plate count is a key indicator of total bacterial populations within the sample. This can give manufacturers a large amount of confidence in their supply chains, to give an overall picture of the severity of any potential contamination. It is important to ensure your testing ability is maintained.
