Through various studies below, we contribute to food safety for people.

1.Studies on analytical methods of pesticide residues
  and veterinary drug residues in food.


 Development of analytical methods for agricultural chemicals and
 veterinary drugs which were discussed the necessity in Review
 Commission on Public Analytical Methods for
 Pesticide Residues (残留農薬等公示分析法検討会),
 and which were set up the standard value by new registration.
 (developed about 20 methods / year)

2.Studies on analytical methods of radioactive
  substances and environmental pollutants in foods.


・Surveillance of radioactive substances in foods including market
 basket samples and development of detection methods for irradiated
 foods.
・Investigation research on environmental pollutants.

3.Studies on dietary intake of food contaminants and    
  analytical methods of harmful substances.


・Collection of data on dietary intake of food contaminants, and
 exploratory of contaminants to be evaluated for food safety.
・Development of analytical methods for harmful metals, natural
 harmful substances and exogenous materials in foods, and collection
 of their analytical data.

4.Studies on quality assurance of analytical results
