Accredited test methods

An essential objective of the project involving the development of the National Center for Scientific Research for Food Safety was to obtain accreditation of the laboratories dedicated to quality control, food safety and security.

Thus, through the team of researchers and young doctoral and post-doctoral students involved, the national accreditation body (RENAR) approved the Accreditation Certificate on 19th of July 2021 for fulfilling the specific requirements of SR EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2018 in order to perform the following tests:


1. Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) methods

  • • Physico-chemical method for the determination of mineral elements (Ag, Al, As, Ba, Be, Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cs, Cu, Fe, Ga, K, Li, Mg, Mn, Na, Ni, Pb, Rb, Se, Sr, Tl, U, V, Zn) in food (milk, dairy products, meat, honey, fruits, vegetables) and drinking water, surface water, wastewater via inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS).

2. Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR) methods

  • Physico-chemical method for qualitative determination of food sample matrices (honey, fish, flour, peanuts, cheese, wine) and tap water and wastewater by FT-IR;
  • Physico-chemical method for the determination of fats in food products (peanuts, fish, cheese) by FT-IR

3. Thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry methods (TG / DSC)

  • Physico-chemical method for determining mass loss of wheat flour by TG / DSC;

4. Gas chromatography and liquid chromatography methods coupled with mass spectrometry detectors (GC-MS and LC-MS respectively)
