Institute of National Analytical Research and Service (INARS) was established in September 2016. Since then INARS has been conducting research mainly in the field of analytical and environmental chemistry and natural products chemistry. This institute is specialized in doing research on water chemistry, more specifically mitigating arsenic and other heavy metal contamination in water. The current trend of research of this institute has also expanded to investigate the organic contaminants in water. A significant contribution in this area of research has come from INARS as it has been involved with arsenic removal technology verification process since last decade. Through this, the institute has come up with the solution to ensure arsenic free drinking water for everyone in Bangladesh.
Besides, INARS has achieved ISO 17025:2005 accreditation as a first ever govt. testing laboratory in Bangladesh. Initially, it received accreditation for thirty four (34) water quality parameters which has been expanded to seventy four (74) parameters this year. The institute is always committed to a le testing services compliant to international standard.
The institute has a dedicated team consisting 29 scientists, technical and other staffs. The team has been contributing in research and development since last few decades. The team is always committed to personal and professional integrity and work together to fulfill a clear vision of the institute.
