With the help of our research and development department, we react to current analytical questions and client requests promptly and skilfully, and are able to rapidly establish new analysis procedures. Requirements for which no analytical standards currently exist, or where they only exist in scientific publications, are quickly developed using the instruments we have at our disposal and then integrated into our range of services. Thanks to our 22 accredited inspection areas, we are able to expand our range of services with quality and expertise.
Some examples of methods that were developed and validated in-house:
- LC-MS/MS determination of pantothenic acid, biotin, inositol, nucleotides, carnitine, acrylamide, solanine/chaconine, tropane alkaloids and pyrrolizidine alkaloids
- GC-MS determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)
- LC-GC coupling for analysing sterols and mineral oil hydrocarbons
- GCxGC-TOF coupling for identifying unknown components.
Thanks to our active participation in panels, such as the widest variety of groups of the GDCh and Section 64, and several DIN working groups, we are always abreast of current analytical standards and quickly implement changes to them. Analysis methods established in the course of routine are regularly examined for optimisation potential relating to sensitivity, simplification of lab processes, sample throughput and reduction in time expanded. The work carried out in our research and development department therefore secures constant optimisation and expansion of our range of analyses, therefore providing the utmost flexibility.
