Impact Microbiology Services Ltd (IMS) is a laboratory partner in Fredericton, NB. We understand food processing and what the actual test results mean in regards to your situation. We will present and interpret your results with the highest standards and with an interest in meeting your needs.

Having worked with Elena Connors for several years before the inception of either The Food Chain or Impact Microbiology, it was a very comfortable decision to follow Elena to Impact for all of our microbiological testing requirements. Impact has built a tremendously proficient and helpful team, not simply reporting test results but helping to interpret the significance of these results as well. In shelf life testing, we confidently combine Impact’s microbiological quality testing with our organoleptic and chemical quality testing to ensure we have a complete picture of how the subject food will perform over time. In talking with Elena and her staff, their dedication to science and to their clients is obvious. For our own work and for referring clients in need of microbiological services, Impact is the obvious solution. Congratulations on 14 successful years and counting, Impact! Carol Crouse, Owner The Food Chain LTD.
