Safety takes precedence over the commercialisation of foods, cosmetics, drugs and animal nutrition products.

Concerning food safety from a physico-chemical perspective, the management of food alerts, control of contaminants (mycotoxins, metals…) and food residues (veterinaries, pesticides, …) as well as the verification of the adaptation of materials in contact with foods is of concern. In addition, preservation technologies take into account food shelf life and the physical study of packaging determining the barrier and the interaction between packaging and the contained product.

As regards quality, some of the most relevant aspects include the nutritional characterization of foods, evaluation of bioactive/functional ingredients, and the study of frauds.

Acting as a laboratory of reference, AINIA optimizes, validates and transfers new customized analytical methods, and the design and assembly of testing laboratories.

AINIA is one of the laboratories designed by the Health Authorities for the Official Control of mycotoxins, additives, metals and pesticides in non-animal origin foods.

It relies on the Quality System (ISO 17025 Standard) of analytical services with 51 assays accredited by ENAC, and has been rated in 2011 among the five best European laboratories of Official Control in connection with pesticide waste.
