Testing Service for Water & Food Safety@UM

Water & Food safety is a critical activity. The quality problem of the water & food would have dramatic consequences to the staffs and students in UM. It would be an extremely annoying, possibly costly and unpleasant experience.

ICMS has therefore co-operated with the Office of Health, Safety and Environmental Affairs (HSEO) to provide testing and monitoring service on drinking water, edible ice, swimming pool water, artificial lake water & food at UM.

ICMS refers to testing standards that combines Macao, the Mainland and overseas’ regulation to closely monitor the water and food quality. Our analysis covers a range of micro-organisms, heavy metals, physical and chemical aspects, etc. The testing result will be submitted to HSEO for further action.

     Water Quality:

  • Physico-chemical parameters: Turbidity, Free chlorine,  pH, COD, BOD5, Total Phosphorus, Total Nitrogen, N-NH3, Ozone, etc.
  •  Heavy metals: Cadmium, Chromium, Copper, Lead, Iron, etc.
  • Microorganism:  Total Bacteria Count, E.Coli/Coliform Count, Fecal Coliform Count, Legionella spp., etc.

    Micro-organism for read-to-eat food
