In Japan's only ISO/IEC 17025-accreditated* university laboratory in the food hygiene inspection field, I contribute to enhancements in the international competitiveness of agricultural and livestock products afforded by food inspections and I conduct research on inspection accuracy management methods.
*Labs that are able to achieve accurate measurements are accredited by a third-party body under the “laboratory accreditation” standard. An accredited organization can promote itself as being internationally recognized for its management capability in inspection work and for technology that can produce reliable inspection results.
