Microorganisms are ubiquitous, many of them are very useful, some are extremely dangerous.  Microbiological testing of food- and feedingstuff is therefore  crucial for the assessment of the marketability of products.

Legislation has defined clear thresholds and prohibits the production and placing on the market of spoiled food- and feedingstuffs which could  adversely affect  human or animal health.

Impetus Bioscience is your competent partner for microbiological testing. Besides the usual standard procedures we apply most modern molecularbiological PCR methods which can reduce the analysis time significantly.

We are authorized to work with pathogens according to §44 infection protection law. Furthermore we are permitted  to work with epizootic pathogens according to §2 animal disease regulation.
