RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

We perform analyses of environmental samples with regard to heavy metals, crude oil derivatives (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), pesticides and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

We use advanced measuring instruments, including a liquid chromatograph with Q-TOF mass spectrometer (LC/MS/MS), gas chromatograph with mass spectrometer (GC/MS), atomic absorption spectrometer with atomization in flame or in a graphite furnace (GFAAS), an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer (ICP-MS), an isotope ration mass spectrometer (IR-MS).

We offer sample collection and transport in the area of Poland. Our laboratory utilizes specialized equipment for collection of environmental samples. We guarantee high quality and professionalism of our services.

Our team consists of professional and experienced academic and technical staff.
