We offer quick and safe analysis methods in accordance with applicable requirements specified in standards, regulations, or legislation.

Safe Food advisory services
Some of our members of our advisory services department specialize in Safe Food. We can deliver customised and comprehensive products if you require assistance with self-checks or other issues. This could include sampling, measurements, analyses, testing, advice, assessment of results and customised reports in accordance with the client’s needs.
We have prepared sampling guidelines for offshore personnel and analysis setup proposals for food sampling. Contact our Safe Food Adviser Svein Gunnar Drabløs if you would like to request further information.
We also offer an e-learning course for “Offshore food hygiene”, available via our course portal.
Accredited analysis of fat and colour content for salmon
Spectrophotometric colour readings are taken at 475 nm. The colour level is also assessed through visual Salmofan measurements. We can conduct analysis of NQC section specimens at individual or aggregate specimen level (5-10 fish).
The methodology used to determine fat content can also be used for other types of fish, such as mackerel and herring. This is an unaccredited method.
