SGS Germany GmbH

The SGS Group is the world’s leading testing, verification and certification company. Founded in 1878, SGS, headquartered in Geneva, employs more than 90,000 people and an international network of over 2,000 offices and laboratories, globally recognized standards of quality, security and integrity.

The SGS Group, which includes SGS Institut Fresenius GmbH as well as SGS-TÜV Saar GmbH, has been active in Germany and around 40 locations nationwide since 1920. As one of the most important independent contract laboratories in Germany, SGS enjoys an excellent reputation among producers, consumers and trade, particularly in matters of the safety and quality of food, beverages and consumer products.

Laboratory work is focused on verifying the authenticity of food. The focus is on innovative approaches, such as the application of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) or the further development of aroma profile analysis, which are designed to help meet the future needs of food manufacturers and traders in this field.

In the „Food Profiling“ project, SGS will deal with the analysis of the metabolism using LC MS / MS. For this purpose, marker substances identified by non-targeted analysis are selected as target analytes for validatable quantitative measurement methods. At the same time, the SGS experts will work to transform the developed approaches into routine methods using LC MS / MS and to establish a validated contract analysis.
