Contract Analyses

The LabSPA – Laboratory for Scientific Particle Analysis – offers a broad spectrum of contract analysis for the characterization of dispersions, powders and porous materials. Contract analysis can be carried out as single analysis, on-demand analysis for a number of samples over a predetermined frame of time or as a large scale laboratory project. We will gladly offer quotations. Individual sample preparation and/or specific measurements can be coordinated together with our highly trained laboratory personnel.
