Future Plan/Activities:

To establish a internationally recognized accredited QA/QC laboratory for meeting the national demand for advanced analytical facilities establishment of new methodologies for identification of different parameters new facilities are to be added in near future are:

1. Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS)
2. Liquid Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer (LC-MS/MS)

Other relevant information:

Senior members of the division contribute by attending meetings of different comities of BSTI for fixation of Bangladesh standards of the industrial products and other materials and also different national committees as expert.
