Methods of analyses

Analyses are conducted according to:

 

  • international standards (ISO, DIN, EN, GB / T, etc.)
  • national standards (AST, AST ISO, GOST, GOST R)
  • any normative-regulatory documents submitted by clients

 

Quality control of analyses performed via:

 

  • periodic participation in professional qualification tests (PT)
  • quality control by digging the standard (spiking)
  • analysis of the sample separately from the standard
  • cross-checking

 

All specialists regularly participate in trainings  in European universities. About 30% of specialists have PhD in Chemistry.

 

  • Only certified reagents and standards are used during sample preparation.
  • All devices are operated in accordance with the standard operational procedures (SOP).
  • On behalf of the National Institute of Metrology of RA annual testing of analytical equipment is carried out and certificates of calibrations are issued.
  • Calibration for quality control assurance are implemented according to the standard operational procedures (SOP)
