Microbiological Testing

Oldcastle Laboratories offers a range of microbiological testing adapted from ISO international methods.   These methods ensure testing results fulfill the food testing requirements set out in the European Commision Regulation (EC) No 2073/2005. Results will be issued within agreed turnaround times and collection of samples can be arranged if required.



ISO 17025 Accreditation

In February 2012 Oldcastle Laboratories was accredited to the ISO 17025 standard by the Irish National Accreditation Board for  Salmonella Testing. This is an  international accreditation and is a further guarantee of the service provided here at Oldcastle Laboratories.  The scope of this accreditation covers Dairy and Food products, animal feeds, swabs and animal litters. As well as being suitable for those required to test food samples under European commission regulations, this test also fulfills the requirements of the Department of Agriculture’s Poultry Salmonella Regulations.
