Instrumental Chemistry


    Infrastructure Details


    The laboratory for chemical analysis is a service lab for inorganic analysis. It commissions for the research groups at the Department of Biology but also for other departments, universities, authorities and companies. We are specialized in inorganic analysis of plant, soil, animals and water samples. Our field of experience also cover other sample types.

    Samples must always be numbered with a serial number and a serial number list must accompany the samples.

    After analysis results will be trasmissioned and the files will be saved for 30 days, then discarded if they have not been downloaded. Sample containers must be picked up within a month.

    Price list
    For sample amount 1-5 there will be additional cost of 50 % of total price and for sample amount 6-9 an additional cost of 25 %. For sample amount 100 and above there is a discount of 10 %.
