Wydo Microbiological Laboratory
Analysis, advice and solution

It is the nightmare of every producer: a microbiological contamination in the production process and/or the products themselves. Quick action is then called for and that starts with an analysis of the contamination: is it bacteria, mould or yeast?

The modern microbiological laboratory of Wydo in Groningen has every facility to determine the nature of a contamination. Independent, reliable and safe.

But a professional analysis does not solve the problem. That is why our specialists also work on location and, where possible, provide advice on combating contamination and solutions to preservation problems.

Analysis of water-borne non-food products

The legislation and regulations surrounding preservatives and additives in products are constantly being made more stringent. This poses considerable challenges to producers. Especially when the products contain a lot of water because micro-organisms thrive in this environment. Moreover, because bacteria are becoming resistant at an increasing rate, strict quality control and regular microbial or microbiological testing are more important than ever.

Wydo provides analysis and preservation advice for aqueous non-food products such as coatings, adhesives and sealants, as well as cosmetics, cleaning products and detergents.

Microbiological testing

In the Wydo microbiological laboratory, our specialists test samples for the presence of possible contamination (control and prevention) and investigate contamination to determine its nature and consequences.

Challenge tests

A deliberate contamination with high numbers of bacteria to determine the shelf life and safety of a product.

Surface testing

Specifically designed to examine antimicrobial activity and efficacy on a variety of surfaces such as floors, walls and coatings as well as packaging materials.

Isolation and identification of contamination

Isolate and identify micro-organisms from samples of e.g., drinking- and process water, air, delivered raw materials, semi-finished products or finished products.
When a contamination is identified, we give advice on control and prevention.

Disinfection tests

To test the effect of disinfectants, we use quantitative suspension tests. These tests provide insight into the inhibition or growth of micro-organisms.

Leaching tests

To examine the possible leaching of biocide from an antimicrobial surface over time.
