Analytical Services

SEAFDEC/AQD offers electron microscopy imaging (TEM and SEM), chemical, and microbiological analyses of the following:

  • feeds, feed ingredients, experimental animals and others (proximate analysis, fatty acid profile)
  • water (pH, alkalinity, chlorophyll, dissolved oxygen, nitrogen (ammonia, nitrate and nitrite), phosphate, total hardness, total suspended solids)
  • soil (pH, organic matter, available iron / phosphorus / sulfur)
  • food products and water (standard aerobic plate count or total viable count; coliform count, determination of Salmonella / Shigella / Staphylococcus aureus / Escherichia coli; yeast / mold count; water potability)

To request analytical services from SEAFDEC/AQD:

Contact the laboratory by sending an email to lfaat@seafdec.org.ph for the availability of schedule, proper sampling procedure and packing of samples for analysis.
