LEAF Environmental Testing

LEAF offers testing of several matrices to the communities in Lebanon and nearby regional countries, providing reliable and defensible data that can be used with confidence in decision-making processes. LEAF maintains a complete commitment to equality that is fundamental in order to remain as a viable, competitive force in the analytical service market.
LEAF quality assurance and quality control (QA/QC) program meets the ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 standard requirements. LEAF conducts testing on air polluting, water, wastewater, soil, compost, agro-food (food and animal feed); packaging materials; and petroleum (e.g., gasoline, diesel, and industrial oil).

Our services cover food chemistry, food microbiology, nutritional analysis, rheology, labeling, packaging permeability and migration, pesticide residues, heavy metals, colorants, allergens, endotoxins, and aflatoxins. LEAF can also test pharmaceutical product, conduct occupational and public health research, and provide diagnostic medical services. All the routine analytical testing LEAF offers follow international standard procedures including HACH, ISO, ASTM, EPA, AOAC, British Standards, peer-reviewed methods, and standard testing methods, in addition to in-house developed methods and non-standard methods.
