Chemists (diplom and B.Sc.), biologists (diplom), geographs (diplom) and several chemical technical assistants are working in our laboratory.


Equipment: ICP-OES, AAS with graphite furnace (Perkin-Elmer), direct mercury analyzer, GC with capillary column and computing integrator, headspace-technique, MS/MS (mass selective detector), FID, HPLC with fluorescence-detector, HPLC with UV-detection, potentiometer, cation- and anion chromatography, AOX, EOX, POX combustion device with coulometer, TOC measuring unit for liquids and solids and UV-VIS photometry.



The analytical main points include the areas of modern chromatographic analytical methods (GC, LC, HPLC) and especially the determination of halogenated aliphats, aromats, phenolic compounds etc. as single substances (PCP, PCB, HCB, pesticides, etc.) as well as sum parameters (AOX, EOX, TOC, etc.). 



The analytical performance profile and enormous range of experience in the efficient management of laboratory activities make the Institut Alpha GmbH & Co.
