The Agro-Alimentary Laboratory is divided into three very distinct areas:
Physical-chemical area: where the analysis and control of food and raw materials by conventional techniques is performed. The most requested analyzes are nutritional composition (Regulation (EU) 1169/2011), allergen analysis, analysis of additives, preservatives and stimulants.
Area of pollutants: laboratory equipment has liquid chromatography (HPLC) and gas chromatography which are detected from traces of pesticides from veterinary residues, mycotoxins, etc.
Microbiology area: tests the range from pathogen detection using fast techniques of molecular biology (real-time PCR) and ELFA (VIDAS) techniques, to the quantification of microorganism indicators by automated NMP solutions or by plate count, using ISO techniques .
