We provide expert and unbiased advice, testing and analysis on a range of environmental, biological, algal and food samples for natural and man-made chemicals, markers and toxins.

Advice and testing services

The scope of our testing, analysis and advice services include:

  • residues and contaminants—analysis in a range of matrices including waters, foods, fruit and vegetables, soil, and biological fluids (blood and urine)
  • algal identification and enumeration—identification and detection of algal toxin genes and toxin analysis in water supply reservoirs, drinking and marine waters. For more information about algal testing refer to the Algal toxin factsheet (PDF, 123KB)
