The Food Chemistry Division

In October of 2019 the four major chemistry laboratories within the DAFM laboratory complex were amalgamated into what is now the Food Chemistry division.  The laboratories within this division operate as monitoring laboratories for the analysis of pesticide and veterinary residues in food, the composition of dairy products, contaminants and chemical elements in food and also the analysis of plant protection and biocidal products.

The laboratories implement the monitoring program for residues in food, compositional analysis, contaminants and chemical elements and pesticide formulated products in compliance with EU legislation.  The Food Chemistry Division consists of four laboratories with different functions:

The Pesticide Residues Laboratory

The Pesticide Formulations Laboratory

The Veterinary Residues Laboratory

The Dairy Chemistry Laboratory

The Food Chemistry Division Laboratories are fully accredited, which means that the EU Commission and our customers can have complete confidence in our ability to analyse samples for a wide range of Food Safety related analytes.  For further information on laboratory accreditation click here.
