Certification Institute deals with: Food products Cosmetic and perfumery Oral hygiene Household chemistry Pulp and paper industry Consumer and shipping container Polymers, synthetics Catering services Hairdresser‘s services Travel package Retail trade services Repairing the household appliances services
Certification Institute is providing the following services: The certification services Analyze the production manufacturing conditions with the aim to reveal factors, which could influence the production quality and to give the recommendation on how to confront those factors Consulting and methodological assistance in development of manufacturing technologies and also in development of quality control systems The staff in department of certification consists from food production technology engineers some with degree in technical sciences, hygienists. All workers are highly professional experts in different types of food products, also in system of quality such as HACCP and ISO-9000. The Center of Quality Control has many years of experience in certification of production and services and employs licensed experts of the highest level of qualification.
Test Lab «PETEKS» The Quality Control Center contains in its structure one of the leading laboratories of the North-West region - the laboratory «Petersburg – Expertise». Being accredited in the GOST R system for technical competence and independence, the laboratory provides a wide spectrum of product tests according to Russian and international standards. Its modern and highly effective equipment enables to analyze consumer characteristics, quality and safety parameters of all kinds of food products, food raw materials, cosmetics, oral hygiene products and household chemicals in a efficient and reliable way
Quality control equipment and methods are constantly improving in the laboratory. A lot of attention during testing is paid to product identification: fatty acid content of oils and oil-and-fat products by chromatography, milk fat content of dairy products, carbohydrates in coffee, untypical additives in vodkas, alcohols, cognacs, grape wines by means of gas and liquid chromatography; identification of juices. Methods of histologic analysis of meat products with the aim to reveal adulteration of composition are applied, as well as methods of determination of a meat type by means of PCR, identification of salt content of mineral waters by means of capillary electrophoresis.
Presence of hazardous substances is determined in the laboratory including such substances as pesticides in food emerging from agricultural products as a result of pest control treatment of plants; mycotoxins formed during contamination of vegetable or canned products with fungi; histamine (its increase may cause allergic reaction); as well as nitrites and nitrates in vegetable products occurring if dosage of nitrogen fertilizers is exceeded, benzapyrene, polychlorinated byphenyl. The laboratory tests preservatives and coloring agents (hazardous in case of overdosage), toxic microparticles in alcoholic products.
The most modern methods of analysis complying with international (ISO) standards including colorimetric and spectrophotomettric methods, atomic absorption spectrometry are used for determination of heavy metal salts (lead, cadmium, copper, zinc, iron, tin, nickel, chrome and mercury) and arsenic in product samples. The laboratory has implemented qualitative and quantitative methods of evaluation of GMO in food products, microbiological analysis with express- analyzers RABBIT (United Kingdom) and Lumiprobe (France). The laboratory is equipped with a chromato-mass-spectrometer by Agilent Technologies (USA) that gives an opportunity to examine samples for almost all global contaminants as well as for substances of unknown origin. In practical activity the laboratory results are acknowledged as arbitral.
Organoleptic, physical and chemical parameters, nutritional and energy values are checked in all kinds of analyzed products. There is a sensory evaluation panel performing expert and taste evaluation of food products and issuing sensory reports. The laboratory has a special taste test room. Processing of information is carried out in an operational database with the use of state-of-the-art information technologies and modern computer systems. The laboratory employs chemist-analysts, microbiologists with many years of experience in the area of quality appraisal, some of them have a Ph.D. The laboratory executes testing of samples delivered by inspectorate bodies and it also carries out analyses on a contractual basis.
