December 2016 Update

December is here and 2016 is quickly coming to an end. Cold temperatures and snow will be entering the picture if they haven’t already and the days will quickly be getting shorter and shorter. This past November was a record one as above normal temperatures and dry conditions were very favorable for soil sampling and analysis. As the year comes to a close, please know that the staff at Midwest Laboratories continues to work on projects in the areas of laboratory instrument review, new method development in the areas of food, micro and pet food and a review of current processes to improve client turnaround times with respect to sample analysis.

Looking to 2017

New opportunities and regulation changes will occur as a result of the recent elections. In addition, current FSMA regulations will be enforced with respect to food safety.

Technology will continue to evolve and more emphasis will be put on mobile technology. As a result, the website will be coming out with a whole new look with functionality that is more user-friendly and mobile friendly. More information to come in the coming months.

In 2016, many projects were initiated with respect to upgrading current facilities and instrumentation at Midwest Laboratories. These changes were implemented to help ensure our commitment to serve clients at a higher standard continues into 2017 and beyond.
