Matís is the designated National Laboratory for food safety analysis. We operate the most advanced laboratory in Iceland for chemical and microbiological analyses. We provide chemical and microbiological analytical services for the national regulatory authorities, private companies and to the public.

Analyses can be performed on all types of samples, such as food products, drinking and bathing water, pharmaceuticals, sewage and environmental samples. Thousands of samples are analysed annually. Other activities of the analytical laboratories include international participation in development and validation of analytical reference methods, as well as development of guidelines and quality procedures for analytical laboratories.
