About us


INTERFIELD LABORATORIES is an independent testing laboratory, established in 1995 for the organoleptic and microbiological testing of marine products.  Subsequently the facilities of the laboratory were enhanced to include chemical analysis and biological analysis, anticipating the potential in other industries like spices, cashew kernels, and various other agricultural products.  Since 2000, the laboratory has been accepting samples other than marine products.

INTERFIELD LABORATORIES has a facility of about 11000 sq.ft.

Legal identity: The laboratory has its legal identity as a partnership firm and has obtained license from Corporation of Cochin to run the business under the Shops and Establishment Act of the Kerala State Government as a testing laboratory.  The laboratory is accredited by National Accreditation Board for testing and calibration laboratories and  approved by the Export Inspection Council of India, Agricultural Produce Export Development Authority, Food safety & Standards Authority of India, Kerala State Pollution Control Board as ‘A’ grade laboratory and approved by the Drugs Controller of India to analyse the drugs and pharmaceutical products.

Quality Assurance

  The Quality assurance includes demonstrating the following:

  • having trained, competent and knowledgeable personnel
  • having suitable laboratory facilities
  • using validated methods providing estimates of the measurement uncertainty
  • demonstrating traceability of measurement by using calibrated instruments and equipment and certified reference materials
  • demonstrating sample traceability by logging, labelling, storing and tracking samples appropriately
  • monitoring performance with QC standards, control charts, replicate samples and proficiency testing.

Interfield Laboratories has a dynamic and ongoing process of quality assurance which encompasses all the three phases of laboratory activities, ie preanalytical, analytical and postanalytical.

Preanalytical includes the availability of trained personnel, sampling based on statistical methods wherever required, verification of condition of sample at the time of receipt, proper storage of sample till analysis in order to  protect the integrity of the sample till it is taken for analysis, delivery of the sample in the lab for analysis, giving a unique identification to each sample so that the samples can always be traced with ease etc.

Analytical phase includes the use of standard method or a validated method, calibration of instrument and reaffirming the confidence in the calibration as per laid down schedule, use of valid reference material, internal standards, quality control samples and use of quality reagents.

Post-analytical phase encompasses interpreting and verifying results, reporting the results with all the necessary details and reviewing the QC.
