Bottlers Chains Of Custody
Bottlers around the world have turned to Edge Analytical Laboratories for certified laboratory work. Our long-standing involvement in the industry gives you peace of mind.
We can service all of your testing needs:
- Finished Product
- Source Water
- New Product Quarterly Testing
- Caps & Bottles
All bottlers are required by the FDA, under the CFR’s (Code of Federal Regulations) parts 129 and 165, to test their finished products and source waters annually. Municipal sources are exempt.
In some instances, bottlers will have additional requirements. For example, states and bottled water associations may require additional testing.
Avoid Rejected Source Samples
Samples requiring cooling must arrive at 4°Celsius +/- 2°
FROZEN or HOT samples will be rejected by the lab.
- We recommend using small cubed ice that’s double bagged to prevent leaking.
- Please use at least the same volume of ice that you used for samples.
- Remember to protect the paperwork by placing it in a bag.
TIP: Sample and ship on the same day to reduce the chance of rejected samples.
