Extension of HOKLAS
Dear esteemed customers,
Chemlab HK (HOKLAS 242) is pleased to announce the extension of our HOKLAS certification to four new innovative testing techniques, effective from 26th Sept, 2016. Further details may be found at http://www.itc.gov.hk/en/quality/hkas/doc/scopes/242.pdf
Two of our four new accredited tests are a novel alternative to the traditionally popular Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes method with a significantly reduced turnaround time; conventional and older testing methods require 5-14 days, yet with our new internationally and locally accredited methods we are able to achieve a 5-day turnaround time. Test results and timing are generally faster and more efficiency than traditional methods.
We now also bring to you newly HOKLAS-accredited tests for Vibrio parahaemolyticus which presence predominantly in seafood. This complex test requires state-of-the-art facilities and experienced lab technicians; Chemlab is one of very few Hong Kong laboratories which offer this accredited test locally.
Should you be interested in the general hygiene of your food processing, we have also been accredited by HOKLAS for a bacterial Enterobacteriaceae hygiene indicator test; with these results, we will be able to interpret for you the overall hygiene of your food manufacturing system and provide you with suggestions and feedback from our industry experts, should issues be found.
