  A platform that offers customised experiences 

through quality service, training and research




Section A Slide 2 Services

In its formative years, various analytical techniques were provided to both government and private agencies requiring evidential and forensic testing for regulatory and research purposes. It should be noted that ABrC is an ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory under National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), Australia. As an accredited laboratory, ABrC conducts analysis according to the highest quality standards and guidelines as outlined by NATA is considered essential in protecting both the client and the laboratory when enforcing the policies within any adjudication process. NATA accreditation benefits ABrC by instituting appropriate laboratory standards, thereby providing the laboratory with a benchmark for maintaining performance. At present, ABrC has been recognised in four (4) main scopes namely:

  1. Workplace Safety
  2. Environmental Toxicology
  3. Food Safety and Security
  4. Biochemical and Metabolic analyses (i.e. Inborn Errors of Metabolism (IEM) disorders in newborn infants)


Section A Slide 3 Training

The centre is fully equipped with different mass spectrometers, such as LCMS QQQ or GCMS QQQ, LCMS Q-TOF, MALDI-TOF, MALDI TOF/TOF, LCMS LTQ Orbitrap, etc. It is our vision to be a platform for training skilled workers who are competent in the field of analytical biochemistry through education and research. In this term, the centre offers postgraduate study as well as in-house/industrial training (by request). Among the topics of training are:

  1. Biochemical analysis
  2. Environmental biochemistry
  3. Environmental toxicology
  4. Food Biochemistry
  5. Forensic toxicology
  6. Genomics
  7. Glycomics
  8. Lipidomics
  9. Metabolomcs
  10. Proteomics


Section A Slide 4 Research

The centre is also supporting the research and development (R&D) in the particular field of analytical biochemistry and therefore collaborative research with different industries and academic organizations is well encouraged. Currently, we have academicians and several senior science officers, who are supporting such research. Our target is to be a global recognized research centre through high impact factor publications and research collaborations.
