CFNR-Forest Products Chemistry Laboratory

This is a teaching laboratory used by students in wood chemistry, pulp and paper technology and non-timber forest products. This laboratory is capable of doing proximate analysis of wood, bark and other lignocellulosic materials, nanocellulose production using acid hydrolysis and mechanical refining, and other chemical tests of pulp. The laboratory also supports the conduct of externally-funded research as well as thesis work of undergraduate BS Forestry, BS Chemical Engineering (Major in Pulp and Paper Technology), and BS Agricultural Chemistry students and graduate students in MS/PhD programs.


CAFS-Meat Research and Service Laboratory

The Meat Research and Service Laboratory (Meat Lab) of the Animal Products Science and Technology Division in the Institute of Animal Science is one-of-a-kind meat research and service laboratory complex in the Philippines. It is capable of evaluating physical (color, firmness, muscle fiber diameter, and tenderness), physico-chemical (muscle pH, water holding capacity), chemical (proximate composition, nitrite content, salt content), microbiological, and sensory characteristics of meat and meat products. It has four sections, namely, chemical laboratory, physico-chemical laboratory, microbiology laboratory, and a sensory evaluation complex.


CAFS-Seed Science and Technology Laboratory

The Seed Science and Technology Laboratory is a teaching and research laboratory in the Institute of Crop Science (ICropS). The laboratory is composed of one full-time laboratory technician, two researchers, and two faculty members. Purity analysis, routine seed tests like germination and moisture content, and specialized tests like accelerated aging and electrical conductivity, among others, and storage experiments are conducted in the laboratory.
