In 2014, SGS invested in GMO, pesticides residues and dioxin testing to better serve Ukraine’s growing agrarian economy.

In Odessa, our facility now offers genetically modified organism polymerase chain reaction (GMO PCR) testing. Following investment in unique equipment for pesticide residues and dioxin testing, this lab is now also able to test for and identify the presence of these substances in agricultural products. The recent installation of state of the art quantitative detection equipment has significantly improved our laboratory capabilities.

Opened in 2014, SGS’s newest facility in Ukraine is our microbiological laboratory, which started delivering testing services in December 2014. Following a successful audit, this lab has been awarded International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) accreditation. At the present time, clients using this facility receive certificates just 3-4 days after loading is completed.

Our team drew on experience from across SGS’s agriculture services business to ensure that all new testing services were implemented and available as quickly as possible, without compromising quality.

Plans are already in place to support clients during Ukraine’s hot summer season. Our labs will operate around the clock to deliver sampling and test results as quickly as possible.

These investments allow us to tailor service packages to each client’s specific requirements.
