Rice Research Institute, Kala Shah Kaku

Rice Technology Lab- An ISO 17025 Accredited Lab

Introduction

Rice Technology Laboratory at Rice Research Institute Kala Shah Kaku performs physiochemical analysis of rice grain for rice breeding material. These tests include Moisture parentage in rice, Amylose contents, Alkali Spreading Value, Gel Consistency, Grain Length, Width and Thickness. Rice Technology Lab (RTL) is an accredited lab for ISO 17025 Standard. The laboratory achieved its accreditation from Pakistan National Accreditation Council (PNAC) in 2018.

Scope

Currently, scope of testing at Rice Technology Lab for ISO 17025 Standard includes Moisture Determination in cereal crops by Oven Drying Method (AOAC Method No. 925.10). The documentation and procedures for other above mentioned tests are prepared but could not be accredited due to the unavailability of Proficiency Test Provider.

Any Other Inspection

Last year, Rice Technology Lab was included in an umbrella project along with other labs for Good Lab Practices (GLP) certification, but the required budget was not available.
