These may include soils, water and wastewater, organs, plants, composts, etc. You can find an overview of our machines and the analyses that can be performed on our Equipment page.

On your request we determine specific parameters on samples. In addition, you may consult us for specific investigations involving qualitative or quantitative detection of substances. We also may perform advanced testing according to your specific demands.

Samples can be brought to the lab or may be sent, accompanied by the order form. The results of the analysis are communicated by email as soon as they are available and checked. The signed written report is sent by regular mail.
