Cosmetics & Pharmaceuticals

Bacteria, yeast and fungi in cosmetic or pharmaceutical products have the potential to cause health issues as well as causing spoilage of the product.


Biodet provides a number of microbiological analyses on a wide range of cosmetic and pharmaceutical products including raw ingredients and finished products. This can include routine testing of products as well as investigations into products that have spoilage issues.


Analyses we regularly perform include general bacterial counts, Yeast, Mould, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas, Coliforms, Escherichia Coli and Salmonella.


Biodet also carries out preservative efficacy testing using either British Pharmacopoeia (BP) or BS EN ISO 11930:2012 (E) standards - With both of these methods under our IANZ scope of accreditation.


As a microbiological consulting laboratory, we are not limited to these standards and are willing to explore new methods, therefore we welcome any enquiries regarding other testing methodologies.
