Enumeration Test

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 evaluates your testing ability for the enumeration of Clostridium perfringens in infant formula.

Clostridium perfringens has been found to cause a large amount of food poisoning when consumed, although they can be consumed without any harm caused. Although this is the case it important to highlight any high levels of contamination within a range of foodstuffs offered to consumers.

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.  As such extensive testing abilities are required to highlight any unsafe foodstuffs.

Infant formula is consumed by infants within a critical development phase of their lives. This therefore requires extensive guarantees of the high quality, non-contaminated nature of their foodstuffs. Proficiency testing should be utilised to ensure the highly accurate testing ability required is safeguarded throughout the year.

Fapas 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.
