JEFCOR LABORATORIES, INC., a name synonymous to Quality Testing and Services originally started as JEFCOR INCORPORATED where it was initially engaged in the manufacture and distribution of chemicals, home products and materials. It later diversified into technical consultancies and preventive maintenance of high-precision laboratory equipment.
The Testing and Technical Services Laboratory was put up in 1997 to initially cater the needs of the pesticide industry and the Fertilizer & Pesticide Authority (FPA). Since then a growing number of analyses and laboratory testing on various substrates has been conducted. Analyses varied from pesticide residues and formulations, macro and micro nutrients, heavy metals, microbes, vitamins, drugs and other parameters in agricultural, feedstuffs, pharmaceutical, petrochemicals and environmental substrates.
The Laboratory has been involved in inter-agency collaborative work with the Department of Science and Technology and the Environment Management Bureau on special projects. It is a recognized stakeholder for the Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) projects of ITDI-DOST. It is the first laboratory to work hand-in-hand with ITDI-DOST on its first-ever Environmental Technology Verification Project in the country and even in South East Asia.
JEFCOR is 2004 PMCP Awardee in Business, the highest award given by the Pest Management Council of the Philippines, the umbrella organization of five distinguished societies: the Philippine Association of Entomologists, Philippine Phytopathology Society of the Philippines, the Weeds Science Society of the Philippines, CROPLIFE, and the Pest Control Association of the Philippines.
Owing to its name in Chromatography, it was appointed as the Exclusive Distributor of Waters equipment in the Philippines in 2004-2009. Waters is the supplier of GC/MS/MS High Resolution Chromatographs that analyze dioxin and furans as well as the LC/MS/MS and other related products. In order to focus JEFCOR’s direction toward it’s core business as a chemical testing and technical services laboratory, it stopped distributing high precision equipment that needed so much time for after sales support but retained distributing reference analytical standards, GC and HPLC consumables through RESTEK Corporation.
The Company is duly registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and is managed and operated by a pool of competent and respected professionals in the fields of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Entomology, Medical Technology, Microbiology, and equally respected technical and administrative staff.
JEFCOR has three branches serving its growing clientele spread across the country: Parañaque, Metro Manila; Main Laboratory in First Cavite Industrial Estate (FCIE), Dasmariñas, Cavite; and another branch in Lanang, Davao City to service Mindanao, the bread basket of the country. The main laboratory in FCIE houses sophisticated high precision equipment and apparatus intended to analyze all types of pesticides, metals, vitamins, pharmaceutical products, etc. even to very low/trace detection level.
The main laboratory in First Cavite Industrial Estate in Dasmariñas, Cavite is presently an ISO/IEC 17025:2005 Accredited for chemical testing. It is the only private laboratory accredited for pesticide residue analyses in foodstuff and agricultural matrix. It is recognized by both the Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) for pesticide analyses and the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) of the Department of Natural Resources (DENR) for environmental sample analyses.
