On the road with Lab M!

Attracting particular attention on the Lab M stand at the recent SfAM Winter Meeting (8 Jan 08, London, UK) on ‘Quality assurance in microbiology and alcoholic beverages’, were SMART QA and ISO compliant dehydrated culture media.

Attracting particular attention on the Lab M stand at the recent SfAM Winter Meeting (8 Jan 08, London, UK) on ‘Quality assurance in microbiology and alcoholic beverages’, were SMART QA and ISO compliant dehydrated culture media. SMART QA, Lab M’s established Proficiency Testing Scheme for the food industry, now covers a total of 15 tests for microbiological quality checks. Participants receive samples either monthly or every other month depending on the mix of organisms required. These are tested using the lab’s normal protocols, with results being returned to Lab M for processing. Individual lab results are compared with a reference range for each parameter and also with the average for all participants.Also high on the list of priorities for visitors was Lab M’s range of ISO compliant culture media. With increasing regulation and a greater onus on media manufacturers to undertake extended testing, the company is continuing a programme to introduce ISO compliant media for a wide variety of food industry applications.  As well as participating in the trade show, technical specialists from Lab M attended the conference sessions. Presentations covered topics from medical device-related infection, through a range of quality assurance issues to scotch whisky production. Continuing its support for the organisation, Lab M will be exhibiting at the SfAM’s Spring Meeting which will take place on 9 April 2008 at Aston University, UK.
