Chemical Contaminants


The research on chemical contaminants focuses in particular on veterinary drug residues, and includes research on environmental contaminants and natural toxins in the food supply.

The research includes:

  • Development of state of art methods to detect chemical contaminants using mass spectroscopy and biosensor technologies.
  • Investigation of the fate of residues during processing.
  • Application of the technologies as part of the national residue monitoring plan.
  • The data and technologies underpin a quantitative risk based approach to the control and management of chemical residues in the food
