Residual Studies


Quality of any product is considered to be attributed due to its bulk properties. However in today’s changing global scenario the quality of any is assessed on the basis of residual impurities present in it rather than the its bulk properties.

The lab is committed to do analysis as per various national as well as international protocols for not only various contaminants, adulterants, toxicants but also elements and nutrients present in trace amounts e.g. residues of pesticides, drugs, toxic metals, mycotoxins, environmental pollutants, vitamins, macro as well as micro-nutrients etc. in various matrices like water, Raw and processed food products of plant origin (fruits and vegetables, cereal grains, oil seeds etc.), Raw and processed food products of animal origin (dairy , egg, meat, fishery products etc.), Biological samples (Blood, serum etc.), Cosmetics and personal care products (Creams, lotion, powders etc.), Herbal medicines, soil, sludge, polymer, toys etc.
