Our clients that we serve operate in a variety of industries, and we provide a number of valuable services to them:

Industries We Serve


We serve the Agriculture industry by deploying a comprehensive range of analytical techniques in order to ensure animal feed remains compliant with international regulations.

Chinese Medicine Manufacturer

The increasing popularity and widespread use of traditional Chinese herbs as alternative medicine have increased the demand on testing in this industry to ensure safety and quality.

Food Manufacturers

A single incident of quality control or poor facility hygiene could have a disastrous impact on a company's reputation. For Food Manufacturers, we ensure food quality during processing, storage, packing and transportation.


Undetected germs and bacteria left behind after cleaning can quickly lead to guest illnesses. Through hygiene audits and food testing, we help hotels prevent a negative guest experience, and protect their reputation.

Importers and Exporters

Traders of seafood, meat and eggs are required by the Singapore Food Agency to perform certain tests and obtain required certificates. We help importers and exporters to obtain relevant licenses and permits including food test certificates before export or transshipment.

Restaurants and Retailers

Restaurants, retailers and their consumers want to be comfortable that their food is safe for consumption.  To help provide that comfort, we test food for pathogens (e.g. bacteria), chemicals and small molecules (e.g. antibiotics and pesticides).
