Food Testing Flowchart

Step 1 – Identify tests
It is important to understand which tests are relevant to your food matrix, product category and country regulation. At Co-Lab, we help food companies identify what test would be suitable to achieve your objectives.

Step 2 – Delivery of samples
Select your timing for sample collection on the weekdays (excluding public holidays)
• Morning (9am – 11am)
• Afternoon (1pm – 3pm)
Upon delivery, you would be notified to make payment.

Step 3 – Payment
For routine orders and loyal customers, payment can be made at the end of the month.

Step 4 – Obtain Results
The Certificate of Analysis (COA) will be sent to your registered email.

Step 5 – Customer Support
Co-Lab serve as the single touch point for all your testing needs. Any issues regarding your results or tests can be resolved through us as we have direct contact with the lab technician conducting your test.
Based on the objective of your test, we may advise you on the interpretation of your results or the next action.

Step 6 – Additional Services
These are paid services where food companies are interested in consultancy or to apply for the Healthier Choice Symbol and make Nutrients/Health Claims. Please seek your respective salesperson to advise on the charges for this.
