The ISU Grain Quality Laboratory (GQL) provides instrumental analysis of chemical and physical properties of grain and other agricultural products. The services are intended to support high-throughput genetic evaluations, surveys of grain quality, and other large-scale monitoring operations. The lab also calibrates various types of instruments for manufacturers and users.
