Chemical analysis laboratory

Laboratory activities:

The laboratory has modern and high-technology equipment necessary to carry out wide range of tests:

Laboratory personnel carries out active work for updating of existing methods and introduction of new methods for preparation of samples of grain, feeds and food products for determination of  residues of different kinds of xenobiotics. It allows not only to reduce analysis time, but also to reduce costs and to improve environmental laboratory operations.

Screening analysis allows to perform rapid monitoring studies of livestock production originating from the farms of the Vladimir and neighbouring Oblasts. Up-to-date, accurate and highly sensitive equipment allows to obtain reliable results and to satisfy all the demands of the Testing Center’s clients.

Laboratory staff takes part in Russian and international scientific conferences devoted to analytical chemistry testing of food products.
