Challenge Test

A challenge test is a very specific investigation. Through this test, we investigate to what extent a micro-organism can grow in your product. We do this by deliberately adding micro-organisms. A common challenge test is the spread of Listeria monocytogenes. Challenge tests can serve to meet the requirements described in info sheet 85.

  • We are committed to a practical, qualitative and personal approach.
  • Our studies can give you a lot of clarity.

Why a challenge test?

Thanks to the results you receive from a microbiological analysis, you will be able to take measures to organise the production process in the correct way. Performing a challenge test often leads to surprising results, which can be to your advantage. In this way, you always stay one step ahead of your competitors.

Quick Results

A challenge test is a specific investigation into the spread of microorganisms. For example, you may be testing for the growth of Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria monocytogenes are then added, so that our lab technicians can validate how the organism grows. Due to the rapid results of a Listeria challenge test, you can quickly improve the production process.
