ALT, based in Newbridge, Co. Kildare is Ireland’s fastest growing laboratory currently offering accredited Microbiology, Environmental Chemistry, Food Chemistry and Veterinary testing services. A wholly Irish owned company, ALT is pleased to announce that as part of its continuing commitment to offer market leading services to the Irish Food Industry, it has recently secured new accreditations to offer rapid 24hr testing for Salmonella, Listeria and STEC using the latest PCR technologies. ALT is at present the only commercial laboratory in Ireland offering these accredited PCR based rapid testing solutions.

Mr. Billy Coleman, Managing Director of ALT said today “This is a major development with regard to the level of services that can be offered to the Irish Food Sector. It allows customers to have access to key results for their products within 24 hrs which will enable them to reduce positive release times and thus assist in getting their products swiftly to market. The STEC accreditations in particular will assist the Irish Beef industry in its continuing efforts to penetrate the US markets by providing some of the key service infrastructure required in this area. We also see these new accreditations of being particular relevance to the Artisan food sector in terms of significantly reducing their waiting times for key results. These new accreditations reaffirms ALT’s commitment to continually improving its service offering and we hope to announce additional new testing services shortly to further expand our range of services’.
