Food Quality & Safety Lab

Food Quality & Safety Lab (FQSL)

Establishment of IIFS's FQSL was funded by NUFFIC's NICHE-BGD-156 project during 2013-2019.

FAO's Food Safety Project in Bangladesh provided technical advice for laboratory installation and operation.

Presently FQSL is providing research and commercial laboratory services in food afety using the following instruments/lab supports.
