Are you looking for a laboratory that analyses your meat products quickly? TLR understands that rapid analysis is crucial for a perishable, frequently sold product group like meat. We perform lots of different analyses to determine nutritional content, quality and food safety, and to detect food fraud. All analyses are performed in a single location. This allows us to achieve significant time savings.


TLR has modern DNA sequencing and PCR techniques at its disposal to provide evidence of fraud – like selling horsemeat as beef. In addition, we can check for a wider range of (environmental) contaminants and residues, such as pesticides, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), dioxins, PCBs, heavy metals, residues of veterinary drugs, and radioactive contamination. We also offer pathogen testing, including tests for clostridium botulinum, enteropathogenic E. coli
(EHEC – ESTEC), listeria and salmonella. TLR performs salmonella characterisation using the checkpoint method, which allows us to confirm the type within 36 hours. Our scope also includes detecting viruses like norovirus or hepatitis A. The nutritional content of meat products and correct labelling are important. TLR analyses the levels of protein, fat, carbohydrates, water, vitamins, minerals and trace elements in your products.
