The Analytical Division is an accredited laboratory under ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and is a core division associated with all the activities of the institute. The Division is accredited for chemical testing of pesticides (Technical & Formulations), Pesticide residues in various food matrices and chemical warfare agents and their precursors and degradation products. In addition to providing various analytical services such as quality assurance, Persistence and Residue Analysis in various matrices, it also undertakes R & D projects from various agencies and the pesticide industries.

The Laboratory is also recognized/certified by BIS for the testing of pesticide formulations as per IS specifications.

The institute regularly participates in the Proficiency testing programmes for the analysis of CWC related compounds conducted by the OPCW (Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons), The Hague, The Netherlands.  The lab got designated by the OPCW in 2011.
