In the area for food safety, our team of professionals work with passion to bring the message of food safety to everyone, everywhere. Our mission is to promote healthy living and well-being by increasing awareness of food hygiene and safety. We aim to make food hygiene measurable and understandable to consumers. In the food and catering industry, HACCP and similar standards exist to provide a shared hygiene standard. LSM encourages the industry to adopt these standards to ensure food hygiene is being well practiced. We provide an affordable and accessible food testing service that is easily understood. Through our microbiology testing service, you will be able to understand how microorganisms in food can affect the health of your customers and your business. Many consumers wonder how clean is the food they are consuming. LSM can provide clear and detailed analysis of the microorganisms in your food, enabling you to make better decisions. Send your food in, and you will understand more about what you are eating, and how clean food can improve your well-being.
In the field of diagnostic microbiology, our team of experienced Hong Kong medical laboratory technologists is offering a high standard diagnostic microbiology services in terms of quality in testing procedure, culture interpretation and antimicrobial susceptibility test. To fight against antimicrobial resistance is the core element under One Health umbrella and this is why LSM is here to serve.
In terms of our vision, LSM works under the concept of "One Health". We work for customers, but we also work for the earth. Food safety contributes to the principle of "One Health". Unsafe food increases the health burden on individuals as well as the wider healthcare system. Microorganisms in food can cause infection, and these microorganisms can come from various areas including domesticated and wild animals, the environment, and humans. These microorganisms may evolve, mutate, gain antimicrobial resistance and eventually become a threat to the healthcare system. Spreading of muiltudrug resistance microorganism through animal-human route is one of the biggest concern leading to the antimicrobial resistance crisis. Being a microbiology laboratory, LSM has the responsibility to help develop future strategies for disease detection and prevention.
