Eurofins Scientific has recently opened a new food testing laboratory in Suzhou, China.

At 3,900m2​ the new laboratory is nearly twice the size of the previous one and the cost of upgrading and expanding the food testing lab amounted to almost €3m.

“With this new state-of-the-art facility, together with our planned investment in other strategic areas in the country, we will be much better equipped to fulfil our mission to ‘Contribute to a safer and healthier world’,”​ said Jason Qin, managing director of Eurofins Food Testing China.

“We will strive to continuously improve our testing capabilities and the level of service we offer to our customers to positively contribute to food safety within and outside China.”

Facility capabilities

The new laboratory offers a broad range of testing capabilities including general chemistry, nutrition, dairy, mycotoxins, pesticide residues, contaminants, genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) and heavy metals.

It also provides compliance testing for food and feed samples based on regulations from China, the European Union (EU), the US and Japan.

Eurofins Suzhou was founded in November 2006, as the first wholly-owned food testing laboratory of the Eurofins Group in China.

There are about 120 employees Suzhou, whose offices and facilities have now been significantly upgraded.

The group has over 35,000 employees in more than 400 laboratories across 44 countries.
