The Centre has equipment for the food and environmental contaminants analysis that is unique within Balkan region and leveled with the international research centers, enabling target analysis of regulated, unregulated and emerging pollutants as well as screening of unknowns in various kinds of samples. The main result achieved after establishing the Centre is development of the advanced and robust analytical methods for analysis of mycotoxins in cereals, cereal-based products, spices, coffee, nuts and milk, generating the first information of simultaneous occurrence of the regulated and unregulated mycotoxins in foodstuffs from the Serbian market. Furthermore, independently and also in close collaboration with eminent EU laboratories, the Centre accomplished the first results on occurence of emerging pollutants in domestic and foreign food items and the environment (i.e. perfluorinated compounds in the foodstuffs and waters, pharmaceuticals and endocrine disrupting compounds in surface and waste waters in northern Serbia and phthalic acid esters)
