Our laboratory provides a wide range of analysis services in the fields of enviroment, materials and articles intended to come into contact with food and materials testing.
The good quality of a product can lead to the issuance of a certification in the form of a declaration of compliance after a successful examination.
We might be able to offer you a prospect for your future.
News: CIR Status in France
Our institute has now successfully obtained CIR status (Crédit impôt recherche) from the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (Ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche). This is already valid for the current year 2023, so our customers can benefit directly from this!

News: Unfair advertising with our certificates
Recently, we have been made aware of a reference to one of our certificates made by the company C&T Matrix regarding the use of the product Speed X for direct contact with food. We demanded of them to desist, but to no avail. We have not performed any corresponding examination for the company C&T Matrix and, thus, neither evaluated nor certified their product with regards to the direct contact with food. We expressly caution you against the use of said product in direct food contact.
News: Inclusion of sensitizers in our routine testing scope for paper and board
With the upcoming revision of Recommendation XXXVI, additional limitations will be imposed on components in recovered fibres intended to be used as raw material for paper. Among these are the modern colour developers or classic ones such as Bisphenol S. Consequently, we have widened the scope of our analysis method for establishing compliance with Recommendation XXXVI for our clients.
This new analysis scope will be applied automatically; our clients do not have to expressly order the new scope. In the field of the monitoring recycling contaminants, we are also covering the components EDAB and EHDAB, which have been limited in France for some time.
