The science of filth analysis involves the examination of food products for insect and animal contamination as well as foreign objects identification. Filth analysis is often required to verify the quality, wholesomeness and requlatory compliance of all types of food products. One significant area of our expertise is on FDA detained products and the specific criteria for the many different foods detained for filth contamination. For over thirty years, the FDA has accepted Michelson Laboratories' analytical reports on detained items. Our analysts are highly trained and knowledgeable on the many procedures and analytical techniques required by the FDA.
