Loughry Science Laboratories

Loughry’s laboratories are equipped with advanced scientific equipment, which enables students to carry out microbiological, chemical and physical analysis of foods and their ingredients. In the microbiology laboratories the microscopes are fitted with image projection systems to facilitate the teaching and learning process. The latest technologies in food analysis are continuously being reviewed, enabling students to gain valuable knowledge and experience relevant to a future career in the industry. Small-scale process equipment also allows the demonstration of computerised process control systems currently in use in the food industry.
