Contaminants can be either chemical, microbiological or physical. At Campden BRI we have a range of analytical techniques to tell you what is there and how much is there, and we can advise on how it got there and how to stop it happening again.
- Chemical – e.g. heavy metals, environmental pollutants, acrylamide and other processing contaminants, illegal colours and other additives, and allergen cross-contamination
- Microbiological – detection, enumeration and characterisation of pathogens, spoilage organisms and marker organsims
- Physical – e.g. glass, metal, plastics, insects, hair and fibres, and vegetable material
