Our legacy:

For hundreds of years, the safety of consumer goods and its production processes have been the utmost importance to our society. Although, we can forego everyday convenience products, we cannot do without our food and vital medications.

Therefore, it is these areas that require special attention and servicing. After numerous years of experience in this industry sector, the two co-founders of the Tentamus Group set out to concentrate on exactly those products – those that we cannot do without in our daily lives. Capable of influencing us for better or worse, these products represent the most intimate contact to our daily lives; namely agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals and medical products.

Today, Tentamus offers a global network of highly specialized laboratories, all of which are equipped to ensure the quality and safety of the tested goods. To maintain this, Tentamus is active in product- and industry-specific knowledge centres, unifying the skills and know-how from each industry, which thereby enables us to provide our clients with the customer-oriented services through our global network.

As a technology leader in the life sciences industry, Tentamus dedicates itself to the continuous advancement and renewal of its analytic methods and devices. Tentamus’ dedication to progress allows us to bring our clients the highest degree of quality and safety and thus, contribute towards the centuries-old need for safe food and medical products.
