French term or phrase: laboratoires d'analyse
OK these are analysis laboratories, but do we actually say that in English, or simply laboratories? These are subsequently described as chemical labs, not medical analysis labs.

English translation:analytical laboratories
Explanation:
is the closest English phrase. Analytical labs are a specific type of facility -- sometimes a subset of large research labs, and sometimes separate from them. In the latter case, the analytical labsare the ones to which research chemists (and other researchers) send their findings for analysis.

Analysis laboratory


Explanation:
The expression "analytical laboratory" is perfectly correct. I suggest this one as equally good, especially if you define what kind of analysis the lab in question specialises in. For instance, you will find a "Lubricant Analysis Laboratory", a "Materials Analysis Laboratory ", "Coal Analysis Laboratory", etc. NASA has a "Sampling & Analysis Laboratory" (http://www-lo.ksc.nasa.gov/services/sampling-analysis/)

Chose the expression you feel most comfortable with, and you're all set!

laboratories


Explanation:
just to put in my two cents. This is what my neighbour, who works in a laboratoire d'analyse calls her place of work in English.
