LaboRatory Services

QMS FOODTECH understands the challenges faced by the agricultural industry. Therefore, our experienced team works together tirelessly to provide our clients with insightful answers that can guide improvements for daily challenges and inform strategic planning for the long term. This includes disease diagnostics and molecular testing.

MICROBIOLOGY

QMS FoodTECH is an ISO17025 accredited laboratory for the analysis of E. coli, coliforms, and bacteria in water which complies with BRC and GAP requirements. A method for the analysis of E. coli, coliforms, and bacteria from surface and hand swabs has also been developed and is in the process of being accredited.

PLANT DISEASE DIAGNOSTICS

Our wide range of disease diagnostic tests and services includes the isolation from plant, soil, and water samples to identify bacteria and fungi associated with plant diseases which enables improved pest management.

Nematodes, Phytophthora and Pythium

The Citrus Improvement Scheme (CIS) has approved QMS FoodTECH as a diagnostic laboratory for citrus soilborne pathogens identification which includes nematodes, Phytophthora and Pythium analysis. Regular training and direct comparisons between laboratories form part of the CIS compliance. QMS FoodTECH can also analyse non-citrus samples for nematodes, Phytophthora and Pythium.

MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS

Committed to excellence, we strive to introduce innovative testing methods to provide the most efficient products possible. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) allows for rapid, accurate and reliable identification of microorganisms associated with diseases in plants and animals. Various PCR-based methods for virus indexing, plant disease diagnostics and identification of microorganisms are currently utilised with additional diagnostics under development.

RESEARCH – THIRD PARTY TRIALS

Research, and specifically registration trial research, forms a crucial part of QMS FoodTECH’s strategy. This allows us to provide scientific data not only to producers, but also to manufacturers.
We are constantly involved in every facet of trials:
• Planning, i.e. location and scientific layout of trials, with a special emphasis on statistical principles;
• Execution; and
• Reporting of the results

MONITORING OF CITRUS BLACK SPOT (CBS)

QMS FoodTECH approaches the monitoring of Citrus black spot (Guignardia citricarpa) by using accurate weather data obtained from weather stations and spore traps strategically placed in orchards.
Potential infection periods as well as ascospore releases are constantly recorded using real-life conditions found in the orchard rather than predictive models alone.
Weekly feedback reports, as well as regular summary reports, are sent to give citrus producers an indication of danger periods. This allows for better planning of corrective action.

At the forefront of innovative solutions

To provide a more comprehensive service to our clients, QMS FoodTECH is at the forefront of research into innovative and improved ways of approaching our clients’ everyday challenges. We are always designing products, services, and systems to address shortcomings identified in the industry, followed by rigorous testing. This ensures that our products and services are adding value for our clients, allowing them to generate products of a higher quality and standard – and, ultimately, leading to improved overall growth in the industry.
