DES MOINES, Iowa, Feb. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurofins Microbiology, a global leader in bioanalytical testing announces their new, state-of-the-art, ISO 17025 accredited laboratory in Louisville, KY. The microbiology laboratory, home of ExpressMicro™, utilizes novel and specialized logistics to provide fast AND high quality results when time to product release is critical. The laboratory offers testing services needed to rapidly quantify, detect, or identify pathogenic, spoilage, and probiotic microorganisms.
Due to Louisville's proximity to over 60% of US cities, and being home to the UPS worldport hub, the new laboratory location will make Eurofins ExpressMicro™ one of the fastest microbiology testing laboratories in the marketplace. Increased logistical speed helps reduce the turnaround time of results by up to eight hours over competing laboratories.
"Our Eurofins ExpressMicro service enables us to provide customers a very quick time to result, without compromising method or process quality. As the time waiting to release product or review results often impacts food production schedules and the bottom-line; it is exciting to have both a local and nationwide food safety and testing solution that incorporates customized logistics and high quality testing solutions via Eurofins ExpressMicro," said Mehgan Styke, Business Unit Manager of Eurofins Microbiology in Louisville. "We are also happy to be in Louisville, and in a growing part of the country that supplies delicious foods and beverages to consumers across the globe."
As Eurofins strengthens its operational footprint in the food safety industry, it remains dedicated to a high level of quality and a reputation for credible results. The Louisville laboratory will follow the same quality standards that Eurofins is proud to incorporate across its many laboratories and divisions in the US.
