Control laboratory – Agronomy, Food and Environment


Technological platform for global solutions

AGQ Labs is an analytical technology center specializing in advanced tests and specialized chemical engineering, offering valuable solutions and services for the Agricultural, Food, Environmental, Mining, Health and Pharmaceutical sectors. It combines technology (analytical chemistry) and specialized knowledge (applied chemical engineering).

The development and growth of AGQ Labs are based on the substantial differential factors our company offers to the market. Our priority objective is to help our customers produce more efficiently, sustainably, and with maximum use of natural resources. This principle applies to all sectors in which we work.

On the other hand, our competitiveness comes from the technology used and the services we design based on it.


Our network of laboratories has all the capabilities to perform the most complex tests on all types of matrices. Our value lies in the following:

  • Technology, all our laboratories are equipped with the most modern analytical instrumentation
  • International accreditation
  • Quality of results
  • Agility in response times
  • BeSafer: an online platform for data consultation and processing


It has been our vocation from the beginning always to have a proactive attitude toward the needs of our customers. That is why we do not limit ourselves to receiving samples and delivering analytical results. The professionals working in our laboratories have particular expertise to address projects that, based on analysis and innovation, open new ways of working. We get to the root of the problem to provide our customers with the most innovative, differential, and profitable solution.


A correct environmental analytical assessment or food characterization often goes through a previous inspection and sampling phase. AGQ Labs specializes in this type of work as an independent third party. These inspections and sampling can be performed under ISO-17020 accreditation (usually when they have to do with regulatory requirements) or by following internal standard operating procedures.


It is part of our business model to give the same importance to our work as a testing laboratory as our role as specialized consultants in the different areas in which we work. That is, the analysis itself is nothing more than a source of information from which, after a correct technical interpretation, to provide a valuable service to our customers. Agronomists, geologists, environmentalists, chemists with different specialties, biologists, pharmacists, etc., make up a multidisciplinary technical network that interacts with each other, thus generating knowledge and expertise continuously.
