Analysis of Food

Eurofins Ecosur is accredited in a wide variety of food analysis, with the  aim of giving reliability and safety in the results.


At Eurofins Ecosur, we are aware of the importance that food security has for society today. Knowing the quality and the state in which the food we consume is found, is of vital importance to be certain that what we are eating meets the requirements and quality standards required.

Nowadays we can know the origin, the nutritional composition and the traceability of each food that comes to our table, thanks to the implication of all the agents of the sector that help to keep a control on the products and raw materials throughout the all food chain.

That is why, from Eurofins Ecosur, we show our commitment to this task.

 In our facilities, through our techniques and laboratory methodologies accredited by the main regulatory agencies, we try to ensure that the quality of what we eat is adequate and demanded by the health authorities, detecting those pathogens, waste and unwanted contaminants, with the aim of guaranteeing the safety of food.

In addition, we are one of the national reference laboratories in number of matrices and tests accredited by chromatography and one of the first private laboratories to be accredited by ENAC under the UNE-EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2005 standard for dioxin analysis and PCB'S in food by GC / MS / MS in Spain.

Our food analyzes are performed on meats, oils, fermented beverages, nuts, juices, fish, cereals, dairy products, feed among others, being specialists in the agri-food sector, in infant feeding and in fruits, vegetables and vegetables.
