Contract lab operations move fast. To help you overcome the challenges of tight deadlines, complex food safety regulations and high employee turnover, we offer deep industry expertise and innovative testing solutions that help make the day-to-day workflow easier and your operations more predictable.

  • Workflow Icon - Efficiency
    Efficiency

    It’s possible to maximise capacity while minimising effort and impacting sustainability. Many of our components are ready to use out of the box with standardised processes to help reduce human error, and they’re designed to help you reduce material waste and energy use too.

  • Workflow Icon - Reliability
    Reliability

    Our optimised lab solutions can fit into your labs workflow and are designed to be easy-to-use, helping to reduce the risk for things to go wrong when compared to traditional methods.

  • Workflow Icon - Accuracy
    Accuracy

    Many 3M food safety solutions and products have been internationally recognised and validated for their performance. Third-party validations confirm that the method has been scrutinised to prove that it is reliable, repeatable and has performed equal to or better than the reference method to which it was compared.


Innovating to simplify.

Streamline complex lab operations with innovative 3M solutions. They seamlessly integrate into existing workflows, reducing inefficiencies and the chances for human error. Precision, consistent performance and intuitive functionality are built into 3M Food Safety solutions.
