The laboratory is accredited by COFRAC (French association for laboratory accreditation) for a set of programs and holds one of the most complex and exhaustive level of accreditation to detect contaminants in foodstuffs :
PESTICIDE RESIDUES and ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS
- Multiresidues in fatty and non fatty products of vegetable and animal origin
- Multiresidues in infant food (threshold of 0.003 mg/kg)
- Multiresidues in bee products
- Nitrates, nitrites, bromides, chlorides
- Chlormequat & mepiquat
- Chlorate & perchlorate
- Maleic hydrazide
- Fosetyl-aluminium and Phosphorous acid
- Glyphosate & AMPA
- Melamine & Bisphenol A
- Dioxins, furans & PCBs
- Lead, cadmium, arsenic, mercury, copper and nickel in all infant foodstuffs
