The Analytical Chemistry Section was set up to carry out analysis for the Institute under strict regimes of quality control thus providing consistency, accuracy and precision in all analyses published.
Over the years the section has modified its services to adapt to the needs of the institute but the original ideals are still relevant. Analytical methods can be developed and validated and the facilities provided for them to be carried out.
The section comprises the following groups:
- Automated Colorimetric Analysis and nitrogen
- Proximate Analysis
- Carbohydrate and Fat Analysis
- X-Map Technology
