With a strong Australian dairy reputation in China and the Asia Pacific region, Eurofins Food Testing Australia has developed testing to support compliance requirements into these markets. Our new site in Dandenong South has a range of NATA accredited GB methods to assist with Chinese regulatory requirements for infant formula, dairy powders and infant cereals.

In addition to local GB method testing, we can bring our global testing expertise to Australian dairy manufacturers via our local site in Melbourne. Eurofins sites in China, New Zealand and Singapore strengthens our positioning by offering a complete suite of accredited GB, ISO and AOAC methods.

Molecular identification for site or product investigations

Microbial Identification via genetic sequencing is extremely useful to help provide identification for unknown isolates that are found to be present in critical areas in an aseptic setting, raw material or product.  Reliable identification is vital for both investigation purposes and in some instances can assist with regulatory requirements.

Eurofins IDmyk allows for the identification and characterization of bacterial, yeast and mould isolates to the species level. With 8,470 valid bacteria type strains entries, the Eurofins IDmyk Comparative Sequence Index database which is proprietary to Eurofins is currently the largest database in the world. ​

The Eurofins IDmyk fungal database (1,650 species) complements our bacterial library. As we know, the larger the database, the better the reliability of the discrimination, and this truly sets us apart from other providers of this service.
