Food quality and safety analyses department


  • analyses of food and non-food products
  • development and validation of methods 
  • scientific research.


The analyses are conducted in accordance with:


  • international standards (ISO, DIN, EN, GB/T, etc.)
  • national standards (AST, AST/ISO, GOST, GOST-R)
  • normative documents presented  by clients
  • technical regulations of European union and Customs Union
  • accredited methods from China's technical regulations.


Quality control of analyses performed via:


  • periodic participation in professional qualification tests (PT)
  • quality control by digging the standard (spiking)
  • analysis of the sample separately from the standard
  • cross-checking.


All specialists regularly participate in trainings  in European universities. About 30% of specialists have PhD in Chemistry.


Only certified reagents and standards are used during sample preparation.


All devices are operated in accordance with the standard operational procedures (SOP).


On behalf of the National Institute of Metrology of RA annual testing of analytical equipment is carried out and certificates of calibrations are issued.


Calibration for quality control assurance are implemented according to the standard operational procedures (SOP).
