 As a laboratory of the Alberta provincial government, the primary purpose of the Chemistry Laboratory is to enable the growth of Alberta's agriculture and food industries. The laboratory produces objective scientific evidence that establishes and promotes the safety of Alberta's agriculture and food products in the domestic and international market places.

Information produced is used primarily by Alberta Agriculture and Forestry scientists and researchers as well as other partner agencies and organizations. Experienced technologists and scientists work with a variety of sophisticated analytical techniques and instrumentation. The Chemistry Laboratory specializes in the detection of organic and inorganic chemical residues in agri-food products.
