Microbac and Sample6 Partner to Make Food Safer Together

In late February, Microbac Laboratories, Inc. announced an exclusive reseller partnership for Microbac customer use of the Sample6 technology solution CONTROL.                   

Designed by food safety software provider, Sample6, CONTROL couples with Microbac testing data to help monitor and produce reports in a breakthrough floor plan view of environmental contaminants within food production facilities. Customers see immediately where--and to what extent--food safety concerns may live within their production facility.          

“Our objective with this exclusive offering is to bring more to bear than just testing for our customers,” says Cabot Earle, Microbac CEO. “This is a leading edge technology platform, that, when paired with our testing data and other tools, accelerates decision making and speed to action at key times in the food production and distribution process.”   

“Microbac’s investment in CONTROL is rooted in the need to help customers take new, intuitive and preventative measures to monitor and manage environmental testing within their facilities,” says Earle.                

CONTROL is a cloud-based platform that helps food producers visualize the plant floor where environmental samples are taken to ensure food safety throughout production. Technology provider, Sample6, started as a detection company with a Listeria detection kit, and now helps to manage environmental monitoring programs with scheduling, monitoring, analyzing and reporting tools.

Microbac will employ CONTROL to help food industry customers plan environmental sample testing schedules, as well as track remediation and corrective actions of positive testing areas should they arise.
