Laboratory Services

Careful Measurement, Accurate Result


Our track record demonstrates that our laboratory has always maintained a strong commitment to experimental work in combination with numerical and analytical analysis. As a result, we are in a position to offer customised and complex laboratory services in cooperation with Clausthal University of Technology (Germany).
