Our Laboratory equipment

Overview of our equipment

Our laboratories have a modern infrastructure and modern high-performance analytical equipment. We always keep our equipment up to date in order to serve our customers according to the latest standards. A selection of our most important analytical methods is given as an example below:
  • ICP-MS, ICP-OES, AAS (element-specific analysis with atomic spectrometric and mass spectrometric methods)
  • HPLC-UV, HPLC-DAD, HPLC-Fluorescence (high-performance liquid chromatography with UV, diode array and fluorescence detectors)
  • HPLC/MS, UHPLC/MS-MS (high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with quadrupole and ion trap mass spectrometers)
  • GC-FID, GC-ECD, GC/MS, GC/MS-MS (gas chromatography with various detectors)
  • Air analysis, dust analysis equipment, impactors
  • Scanning electron microscopes (SEM) with electron microprobes
  • high-performance optical microscopes with image analysis
  • standard bacteriological methods and diagnostics
  • fungal diagnostics
  • sensory laboratories
  • routine chemical and physical analysis
  • photometric, dimensional and gravimetric analytics
  • analysis of sum parameters (e.g. COD, BOD, TOC)
  • limnological analysis
  • mobile analytical equipment
  • sampling devices and vehicles
  • We have spatially separated incoming sample laboratories and sample preparation laboratories for different sample types (drinking water, wastewater, and soils as well as materials of all kinds) to avoid cross-contamination as far as possible.

The connection of all laboratory areas to our powerful laboratory information system ensures the reliable provision of results
