Our history

Sonic Food & Water Testing (SFWT), a subsidiary of Sonic Healthcare Limited, was established more than 20 years ago in Penrith, NSW.

The Food & Water Testing division of Sonic Healthcare began its operations in 1990, in Emu Plains. Over the years, company development has seen the operations expand and Sonic Food & Water Testing (SFWT) has become one of the largest environmental microbiology laboratories operating in New South Wales.

Our Penrith laboratory is a purpose-built modern facility with state-of-the art technology, and operated by a team of expert scientists. SFWT provides a seamless service to customers and offers a comprehensive range of fully accredited testing services.

SFWT is now a widely recognised and well-respected organisation and, although work is primarily performed for NSW companies, our client base is national, with samples also received from  the states and territories of Australia.
