What it tests

This food package aligns with the Canadian regulation, which includes the following parameters listed below:

pH Levels: Measures the effective acidity–the degree or intensity of acidity.

Water Activity:  The degree to which water is “bound” in the food, and its availability to participate in chemical/biochemical reactions and growth of microorganisms

What you get

Upon purchase of this test, you will receive a CARO Kit:

Testing Containers – For food tests, we will send you a CARO jar or plastic bag for you to sample with. It’s common for clients to send us their own packaging. If you don’t need a plastic bag from us, you can choose free shipping!

Sampling Guidelines – We’ll make sure you know the correct methods of sampling to ensure there aren’t any hiccups in the testing process.

Chain of Custody – This is a standard laboratory form that must be filled out and shipped back to us with the bottles. It’s used by our staff to make sure we do our job right!

The Report – We will send your report via email and you can access it online if you use our service called ClientConnect. Regulation maximum accepted concentrations are listed as well so you can compare your results.

Does not include sampling safety equipment as what is required depends on various circumstances. Please contact a local environmental consultant if you have questions or concerns about safely sampling. CARO provides testing services only, no sampling services.

How it works

After you purchase a kit on our store,

We will ship the CARO Kit to you via express shipping. In the CARO Kit, you’ll receive the sampling containers, a sheet to show you how to sample, as well as a chain of custody form (COC). The COC form is a standard lab procedure to get the correct information from you.

Once you sample, it’s advised to get the samples back to us ASAP. You can do this by getting that CARO Kit to a post office or courier and send it back to one of our locations. Certain tests like Microbiology (found in most drinkability packages) have a sample holding time of only 24 hours, so it’s vital to get the containers in transit right away.

So we’ve received your samples, allow 5 – 7 business days for us to analyze them and produce the reports for you. We will email the report to you when it’s ready. Every result’s turnaround time (TAT) will be started on the delivery of filled bottles back to the laboratory.

Internal rushes are possible for non-micobiology tests. Either use the Turnaround Time add on, or make a custom inquiry via the contact us webpage or on the phone.
