DAIRY

For three decades, our success can be attributed mainly to our constant quest for innovation in testing solutions that deliver ever more accurate results operationally efficiently. We do this because we believe this will ultimately reduce the overall cost of testing. In fact, Symbio has invested in the latest testing instruments and installed them in all of our testing laboratories. We did this to ensure consistent methods among the results across Australia.

At the centre of the technology are infrared technologies including the Near Infra Red (NIR) and the Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) analysis, which allows for rapid and accurate assessment of milk products.

Microbiology Testing

Listeria

Bacterial Count

Freezing Point

Somatic Cell Count

Fats

Lactose protein

Residue Testing

Pesticides

Residues and contaminants

Elements

Hydrocarbons

Industrial Chemicals

GRAIN

We are Australia’s leading analysis laboratories when it comes to quality assurance and product specification. We verify these things by analysing and confirming the nutritional composition of the grain, and—concurrently—affirming the absence of residues and mycotoxins.

We do this because we believe consumable items including grains should be safe for human consumption. We apply these same standards to stockfeed.

LIVESTOCK

At Symbio Labs, we know that the quality of any meat product is determined by the quality of the food used to feed livestock. However, the conventional methods of estimating the diet quality of grazing cattle are costly, time-consuming and generally unreliable.

In an effort to offer affordable, rapid and accurate food quality analysis, we are now using state-of-the-art technologies, which survey cattle feacal matter using Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy (NIRS) to measure the quality of the animal’s diet.
