The chromatography area has laboratories dedicated to the analysis of residues and other two chromatographic laboratories for the analysis of food composition. One of them is equipped with high performance liquid chromatographs, with UV / Visible and Fluorescence spectroscopy detectors: HPLC-UV and HPLC-FLD. In this laboratory determinations are made such as vitamins, preservatives, caffeine and antioxidants.
The second chromatography laboratory is equipped with a gaseous chromatograph with flame ionization detector: CG-FID. In this laboratory the lipid composition of the food is analyzed in which different types of fats (Saturated, mono and polyunsaturated), trans fats and cholesterol, Oleic / linoleic ratio, and iodine index, are describe.
