“Whatever it Takes!” This is more than just a statement -- it’s
how we do business. It is what sets us apart from everyone else
in our industry.

independent microbiological and chemical testing services. In addition to supporting
clients in their routine testing programs, AFTL offers Microbiological Research,

is built on a collection of outstanding industry veterans. A privately held company, the
active owners have more than 60 years of experience in food processing and supply
chain management. Our senior scientists have more than 50 years of experience in the
commercial laboratory and research industries. Nearly all of our technicians are degreed
in the sciences.
Our research scientists set the standards for industry and are capable of designing and
executing the most challenging studies. Capabilities include, shelf-life and challenge
studies, AOAC Research Method Validations and Test Method Optimization and Field
Assessments. And of course, consulting and regulatory service support is always available
to our clients.
Every client is assigned an Ambassador. These individuals are degreed scientists that have
intimate knowledge of our laboratory operations and quality policies. Their number one
priority is to understand the client’s specific needs, products and business and advocate
within the laboratory to ensure their client’s expectations are met.
This unique blend of diverse individuals is supported by a culture rich in entrepreneurship
and client focus, state-of-the-science laboratories and the latest IT platforms. All are empow-
ered to achieve our goal of providing exceptional technical resources and customer service
