Gas Chromatography (GC) Laboratory

Within its services the Gas Chromatography Laboratory offers the possibility of performing the qualitative and quantitative analysis of organic compounds mix using the gas chromatography (GC-ECD, GC-FID) and mass spectrometry (GC-MS). It is possible do develop and validate in the laboratory the analytical methods using chromatography technologies, which will fulfil the requirements of customers.

Thanks to the complex equipment and neighbourhood of other laboratories dealing with the separation technologies the laboratory performs physicochemical qualitative and quantitative
testing in waters, soils, sewages, air, sediments and wastes. Also it is possible to perform food analysis, medicine analysis and diet supplements analysis in respect of appearance of the particular organic compounds

The personnel employed at the Laboratory is highly skilled, trained expertly, having credentials of many years of professional experience in analyses of different matrixes (from environmental, through food to biological material).

The Gas Chromatography Laboratory (GC) holds the Testing Laboratory Accreditation Certificate No. AB 1661 issued by the Polish Centre of Accreditation confirming compliance with the requirements of standard PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 in the scope of the accredited activities.


  • Developments and validation of analytical methods
  • Qualitative and quantitative analysis

chemical substances using technologies: GC-MS/MS, GC-FID, GC-ECD in the scope of testing: volatile organic compounds, pesticides and medicine residues in the environmental samples and upon the prior agreements of selected organic compounds in therapeutic substances, cosmetic products, food and veterinary products.
