History

In 1995, Dr. Winai Dahlan began Halal science laboratory construction in the faculty of allied health science of Chulalongkorn University, in order to support operations associated with halal food consumer protection.

In 1997, GC-FID technique was used to detect pork contamination in halal sausage products.

In 1998, Became ASEAN’s halal science training center under ASEAN’s special committee of halal guideline.

In 2000, Joined Bangkok’s Office of Islamic Committee handling halal certification’s sample analysis.

In 2004, Became fully operational halal forensic laboratory in the are of 400 square meters on Chulapat 6 building in Chulalongkorn University

In 2010, The laboratory was moved to the 11th floor of Chulalongkorn University’s research building with the area of 800 square meter.

In 2011, Developed of animal stress testing and won prize from World Halal Research held in Malaysia.
