Microbiology

The Laboratory of Microbiology (LAMICRO) of Plantec laboratories, performs quality control in food, cosmetics, veterinary drugs and human drugs.

Aiming to meet the market requirements and standards of biosecurity, the microbiology laboratory works within a strict quality control and follow updates pharmacopoeia.

To know which services we are accredited, our scope ISO 17025 (CRL 0297) can be consulted on the INMETRO website.
