Food Microbiology (non-pharma)

Deibel Labs grew from a small store front laboratory in Madison, WI in the early 1970’s, to an International Corporation of 9 food testing labs in the U.S. and Canada. We are on the approved list for almost all of North America’s leading food producers, and have a robust Quality plan that includes ISO 17O25 compliancy. Our largest clients, easily recognizable on grocery shelves nationwide, have been with us from as far back as our first lab in Madison. Building upon these solid partnerships, we have maintained double digit growth for the past several years with the addition of multinational corporations along with smaller, family owned businesses, much like our own.

Check us out and see why more of America's leading food processors are switching over to Deibel.
