The following list is an excerpt from our testing scope microbiology. We are gladly prepared to give you further information on specific analyses and projects. Feel free to call us or write to us!

In addition to the test reports we can issue expert's opinions for successful material testing. In these certificates, we evaluate and interpret the results of the examination with reference to the test report. The issuance of an expert's opinion is a separate order for our expert Dr. Derra.
