In 2014, we joined forces with the Tentamus Group of world­wide labo­ra­to­ries, making us a power­house inter­na­tional lab service.

We service a large range of clients, from indi­vidual consumers to mid-sized agri­cul­tural producers to Fortune 500 compa­nies. Addi­tion­ally, since we have USDA vege­ta­tion and soil import permits, we are fully set-up to serve our over­seas clients. With three primary service lines covering a wide variety of analyt­ical services:

  • Micro­bi­ology
  • Nutri­tion labeling
  • Water
  • Waster water
  • Metals
  • Pesti­cide residue-related testing

We’ve got you covered!

Tentamus Global Network – Labs for Life

Tentamus repre­sents a group of compa­nies based in Berlin, whose objec­tive it is to unite labo­ra­to­ries that are leading in quality. This results in a compre­hen­sive and broad range of services that allows for compat­i­bility with a wide variety of customer demands and timely as well as expert execution.

As a company of Tentamus, Columbia Labo­ra­to­ries can offer you an even greater range of analyses from one single source.

Our Mission

Columbia Labo­ra­to­ries is dedi­cated to providing accu­rate data at the highest level of effi­ciency. We care what goes into our bodies and we want others to enjoy the reas­sur­ance our labs can provide.

At the fore­front of analyt­ical testing, we bring exper­tise to the table for producers, proces­sors and consumers, using the most advanced tech­nology in the industry.


ISO/IEC 17025:2017 spec­i­fies the general require­ments for the compe­tence to carry out tests and/​or cali­bra­tions, including sampling. It covers testing and cali­bra­tion performed using stan­dard methods, non-stan­dard methods, and labo­ra­tory devel­oped methods. Columbia Labo­ra­to­ries is ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accred­ited through ANAB.


Proficiency Testing

In addi­tion to internal quality control testing, Columbia Labo­ra­to­ries partic­i­pates in inter-labo­ra­tory profi­ciency testing admin­is­tered by the following organizations:


Quality Assurance

Our quality assur­ance policy is imple­mented and enforced through the unequiv­ocal commit­ment of manage­ment, at all levels, to the Quality Assur­ance (QA) prin­ci­ples and prac­tices outlined in our compre­hen­sive quality assur­ance ethic programs. Our policy is to use good profes­sional prac­tices, to uphold the highest quality of service and to comply with the TNI and ISO/IEC 17025:2005 standards.

It is the objec­tive of the QA program to assure that the data gener­ated is trace­able, tech­ni­cally compe­tent and legally defen­sible. We are committed to consis­tently provide our customers with data of known and docu­mented quality that meets their requirements.

The primary respon­si­bility for quality rests with each indi­vidual within the lab. Every employee must ensure that the gener­a­tion and reporting of quality analyt­ical data is a funda­mental priority. All employees are trained annu­ally on ethical prin­ci­ples and proce­dures surrounding the integrity of the data gener­ated. Columbia Food Labs also main­tains a strict policy of client confidentiality.
