Analysis and food safety
Highest quality and greatest confidence
Bio-Check (UK) was founded by Phil Goodwin in 2004 and operates from a modern facility in St. Asaph, North Wales. It strongly believes in the importance of evidence-based Food Safety and Quality systems and recognises that this need is driven by major changes in regulatory frameworks, where compliance is not enough; evidence is needed that systems are under control and have been risk-assessed. Bio-Check seeks to develop and manufacture innovative new and improved food testing kits, with functionality providing benefits to clients whilst improving our competitiveness. It avoids, where possible, the status quo and continually examines and improves efficiency in all areas of its business. Bio-Check believes it has an important mission to contribute to tackling the challenges of delivering safe and wholesome food in a complex, constantly changing world.

Gluten intolerance, allergies and meat impurities
Decades of experience in medical diagnostics and research, analysis and application of food tests to increase efficiency with modern, reliable test procedures for highest quality and maximum food safety.

Ensuring free from gluten.
True gluten intolerance or Coeliac Disease affects 1% or more of the EC & US populations, but many more people also believe themselves to be intolerant to wheat or gluten products in some way. In both situations, avoidance of gluten-containing foods is either mandated or beneficial. This makes the marketing of gluten-free products desirable, but access to this rapidly-growing market comes with stringent guidelines. Bio-Check (UK) has developed it’s new quantitative Gluten-Check ELISAs (now based on the R5 antibody) and it’s rapid, on-site FlowThrough formats (also based on the R5 antibody); between them they offer effective assessment of the presence and levels of gluten in raw materials, surface swabs and food products.

Identifying legislated allergens.
Bio-Check (UK) has developed Allergen-Check ELISA kits and rapid, on-site FlowThrough™ tests for use on a wide range of legislation-controlled food allergens. Already used by labs and food processors throughout the UK and overseas, our tests are effective and efficient, designed to help you meet and exceed both UK and EU food regulations. The ELISA kits quantitatively detect allergens in fresh, processed and heated food products, as well as in surface and environmental swabs. They each use a simple 3-step, 60-minute sandwich assay format and contain all the reagents required for extraction and detection. The kits are easily automated for even greater testing efficiency.

Tracking down improperly declared meat.
Using its extensive experience in this sensitive area of food safety, Bio-Check (UK) has developed rapid, on-site FlowThrough™ tests and laboratoryCheck™ ELISAs to detect incorrectly declared raw meat. These are used by laboratories and food producers worldwide. The advantage: they are effective and efficient and meet, and in most cases exceed, EU food regulations. The ELISA kits detect the origin in fresh, minced and other chopped meat products.
