ISO 17025 Accreditation: Confirmative analysis of nondioxin-like PCBs

Dear customers,

Please let us inform you about our newly developed and now ISO 17025 accredited service laboratory analysis: 

Chemical analysis of non-dioxin-like PCBs in feed/food.

Therefore we are now able to offer you a cost-efficient all-in-3 analysis for  

dioxins PCDD/PCDFs + dl-PCBs (by cell based screening DR CALUX) and non-dl-PCBs (by confirmative GC-ECD analysis) 

 …..which are demanded e.g. by the EC/252/2012 (food) and EC/278/2012 (feed).
