Co-operation offer and scope of services:
The section provides a wide range of LCIAI offer in terms of:
• qualitative and quantitative determination (HPLC) of various compounds, e.g.: benzoic acid, sorbic acid, tartaric acid, acetic acid and other organic acids, aspartame , acesulfame, histamine and other amines and amino acids, B vitamins, vitamin C, colourants, sugars, alcohols, mycotoxins, aromatic hydrocarbons, metabolites formed in bioprocesses, peptide profile in cheese making and many others,
• determination by GC method of such compounds as: metabolites formed during bioprocessing, fatty acids, essential oils, pesticide residues, lower alcohols, hydrocarbons, etc.,
• spectrometry laboratory offers the possibility of determining macro (calcium, magnesium, potassium, etc.) and micro (iron, manganese, selenium, chromium) elements and heavy metals in samples of biological and mineral origin (soils, plants, etc.)
• within the microbiology and molecular biology laboratory it is possible: to determine the total number of microorganisms, the number of molds, yeasts, to detect pathogenic staphylococci, to detect Listeria, Salmonella, Shigelli, etc.,
• the presence of other pathogens by conventional methods and PCR, GMO content,
• and in addition: determining the energy value of products, content of amino nitrogen, nitrates, nitrites, heavy metals and other elements (atomic absorption), color tests, products texture tests etc.,

The analytical capabilities of LCIAI, in terms of physiochemical, biochemical and microbiological parameters, allow for performing the full spectrum of indications required by standards and procedures related to quality control for: water, plant and animal fats, milk and dairy products, meat and cured meat, vegetables and fruits , beer, wine and soft drinks.

For whom?

It is the first center of its kind in Lubuskie Voivodship, unique on a national scale.
