The firm’s NMR food-screening applications for juice, wine and honey profiling are covered by the accreditation.
Dr Iris Mangelschots, president of Bruker BioSpin’s Applied, Industrial and Clinical (AIC) division, welcomed the accreditation.
“NMR now delivers certified methods for targeted, as well as non-targeted food screening. For food analysis this enables the identification of unexpected and unknown deviations and falsifications that can highlight processing issues, frauds or adulterations.”
Government and private analytical service laboratories offering NMR-based testing for food authenticity and quality with Bruker’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) and validated methods can now more easily get the methods accredited in their lab.
Christian Kost, managing director of Winespin-Analytics, said: “As a company providing NMR-based analytical wine profiling, the ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation of Bruker is of significant importance, allowing us to now offer accredited NMR wine profiling according to international standards to our customers.
“The accreditation represents a milestone towards NMR becoming a more widely used technique for wine analysis, enabling us to offer this unique, information-rich technique to a broader set of wine industry customers.”
