Identifying Pork Contaminated Products
A multi-national nutraceutical manufacturer that sells product into the Halal market was concerned that certain globally-sourced products and components (i.e. gel capsules) may inadvertently contain traces of pork.
Testing and inspections by government entities and consumer watchdogs were increasing and the Company was concerned about protecting its customers, its brand, and its reputation in the marketplace. The client needed an accurate and easy-to-use solution for on-site confirmation that raw ingredients and final products did not contain pork-derived materials. The testing solution also needed to be fast such that it would not disrupt production activities.
InstantLabs worked with the client to perform a blind-coded study demonstrating that the Hunter® system would generate accurate results consistent with those provided by a contract laboratory. InstantLabs installed the Hunter® system on-site and trained existing staff in less than half a day.
