The Laboratory of Food Analysis is specialized in the development of analytical methodology for the detection and quantification of foreign substances in various food types. These include growth promoters, veterinary drugs and mycotoxins like aflatoxins, ochratoxin A and T-2 toxin. It has gained an international reputation by the organization of the International Symposium on Hormone and Veterinary Drug Residue Analysis.

Since 1996 the laboratory is accredited (EN ISO 17025) by Beltest (now BELAC).

The laboratory is partner in Food2Know, the Ghent University interfaculty centre of knowledge about food science, nutrition and health.

The laboratory is also part of the Forensic Institute of Ghent University (FI UGent), established in December 2007 as a result of the long-standing collaboration between the Department of Forensic Medicine and 3 laboratories of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
