Toxicological Analyses Service

The toxicological analysis service has the mission to offer high quality testing to the community aiming the determination of metals/metalloids and organic compounds in various matrices that include food and clinical samples. Blood, plasma, urine and hair analyzes are performed for monitoring exposure to metals/metalloids and organic compounds in humans. Moreover, food samples are analyzed for the diagnosis of possible contamination, assuring safety conditions to our population.

For that, the lab has the highest level of technology in analytical instrumentation for the determination of different kinds of metals and metalloids (ICP-MS and LC-ICP-MS) and organic compounds (HPLC-UV-Fluorescence, GC-MS, LC-MS/MS). To ensure the quality of the results, the laboratory often participates in Proficiency Testing Programs.
