The physicochemical and microbiological testing laboratory of “Narek” scientific research CJSC has adopted a policy of continuous development and progress, improved its experimental base, and expanded the list of provided services.
The laboratory is equipped with the latest equipment and measuring tools, thanks to which it operates in accordance with international standards, carrying out tests to determine both safety and quality indicators of food and non-food products, as well as combined feed. The tests are performed in accordance with the requirements of the normative documents of the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union.
The laboratory employs testing specialists whose competence is certified by internationally defined standards: participation in PTs, witness audits, practical tasks and other assessments.
The laboratory regularly participates in interlaboratory comparative tests and reports positive results.
Microbiological testing department carries out tests for the detection of pathogenic microbes in food using classical and accelerated methods, qualitative and quantitative detection of GMOs, which contribute to the implementation of proper control over food and raw materials, ensuring the most efficient service to business owners.
Microbiological indicators of food and non-food products include the following groups:
In the department of chemical research, along with classical methods, tests are carried out with liquid, gas chromatography, immunoenzymatic, and atomic emission methods. Being equipped with automated equipment used for testing and sample preparation, the range of tested indicators has been expanded and the duration of a number of tests has been shortened.
The following safety indicators are determined in the laboratory:
The following quality indicators are determined in the laboratory:
Payment for work on conformity assessment is made on a contractual basis.
