List of services

We have many years’ of extensive experience of analysing food, drinking water, utensils, cosmetics, pharmaceutical products and animal feed. Our high-tech laboratory apparatus provides for a wide range of chemical, physical, microbiological, molecular biological, microscopic and sensory procedures, for which we are not only accredited but in some cases also officially certified. These analyses are carried out according to official test methods (ASU, DIN, SLMB, AOAC, DGF, IOCCC, IFU, VDLUFA, European Pharmacopoeia, etc.). There are no official methods, so we work according to established, validated, (in-house) laboratory methods. You can find an overview of the laboratory analyses and services we offer in our downloadable list of services.
