TSL Laboratory Services Limited

TSL Laboratory Services Limited (TSL LS) was born out of TSL in 2019, of which it is a subsidiary.

TSL LS is a full-service analytical laboratory that was the first ISO 9001 certified (now ISO 17025 accredited) laboratory in the Caribbean.  It is the largest food testing laboratory in the Caribbean in terms of volume, and does significant work in the areas of occupational health and safety and environmental testing.   TSL is currently ISO 17025 accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) to offer an extensive range of microbiological, and chemical analyses. The laboratory serves the agriculture, agro-processing, manufacturing, distribution, export, food service, tourism and hospitality sectors in countries across the region with the widest range of accredited analyses offered in the Caribbean. 

We conduct all the analyses required for sauces, beverages, vegetables, water (bottled, potable, waste and recreational), prepared foods, food service meals, smoked foods, meats, and dairy products, among others. We also do environmental swabs and air quality assessment to verify the efficacy of cleaning, sanitation and decontamination measures. This includes effectiveness of these measures against organisms such as Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus aureus and others. Our newly introduced service also assesses effectiveness of these measures against SARS-CoV-2, the Novel Coronavirus. 

TSL LS boasts a highly trained team of analysts and employs the latest industrial technology, continually striving to improve efficiencies and reduce turnaround times.  We offer our clients World Class services enabling farmers, manufacturers, exporters, food service businesses and distributors to get their products to market quickly, and assuring those in the hospitality industry of the safety and health of their operations.
