Working together for safe and high-quality food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical products

For 25 years, we have been testing the products of over 3,000 food, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical companies for quality and safety. This makes an important contribution to consumer protection, as BAV-tested products can be found in every household.

We are an accredited contract laboratory and offer our customers services related to hygiene and quality control. In addition to laboratory analysis, we specialize in practical consulting and training services. As a member of Tentamus Laboratories, we also offer a wide range of microbiological and chemical analysis from a single source.

Our motto of „fast and reliable“ is always our top priority. We have established 24-hour rapid methods for almost all testing parameters. Using an internally developed RT-PCR method called „Tenta-Speed L.mono“, the pathogen Listeria monocytogenes can even be detected in food in just 6 hours. The MALDI-TOF method is also used daily to quickly and safely identify bacteria and yeasts within minutes.

BAV stands for speed, reliable results, and flexibility. We achieve this through competent employees, good organization, and experience.

We aim to provide optimal conditions for our employees and be the best partner for our customers.

Join us in shaping our future!
