The Use of Laboratory Information Management Systems in Food Safety Testing

Share this information: 

Recent issues concerning contaminated foods have been given wide coverage in the world's press, which in turn has led the consumer to question the safety of both domestically produced and imported foodstuffs.

The ensuing demands for surveillance of food ingredients and products means that food laboratories are required to deploy an increasing number of testing methods and to sort through the resulting data to highlight potential problems.
