Food Safety

Effective 1 October 2018, Aspirata Laboratories will trade as NOSA Testing. The change in name is in line with NOSA Group’s integration into a single entity with a collective, focused approach to all business assurance services offered to clients across South Africa, Africa, and other developing countries. This follows on from The Carlyle Group’s acquisition of the NOSA Group on 1 April 2018. 

NOSA Testing will continue to offer unmatched technical expertise with regard to microbiological and chemical analysis (which includes testing required for occupational hygiene/AIA, beverage grade CO 2 , medical devices, molecular testing, immunology testing, nutritional, heavy metals, and food contaminant testing), to both its partners and clients in the food safety space. To ensure the transition from the existing corporate identity to the new trademark is seamless, the business will be co-branded as NOSA Testing / Aspirata for a period of six months.
