New testing equipment worth half a million euros
5 years ago, our management staff noticed the need for closer cooperation with domestic regulatory bodies on the one hand and with EU institutions on the other hand in order to provide support in the form of donated equipment from EU accession funds. During 2017, in close cooperation with the competent ministries of the Government of the Republic of Serbia and their expert teams, our company provided the first donations from the accession IPA 2013 funds of the European Union in the form of the latest equipment and instruments as part of the project “Procurement of equipment necessary to improve conformity assessment services in the Republic of Serbia ”.
The value of the equipment is around half a million euros and we are proud of the fact that we are the only private company that has managed to provide this type of support in this project. By procuring new equipment and instruments, we have ensured a thorough renewal of our resources.
As part of our company’s laboratory services, the new sampling equipment expands our possibilities for sampling pollutants that we have not been able to sample so far, as well as increasing our capacity and the possibility of simultaneous sampling and measurement of pollutants in the field of environment. A gas chromatograph with a triple quad mass detector and a liquid sample autosempler with 150 sample points for the analysis of organic pollutants should be noted. The sensitivity of the purchased gas chromatograph is 20 times higher than any triple quad detector from competing manufacturers. A special segment of the procured instruments refers to the duo system of atomic absorption spectrometers which enable very precise and fast work in terms of metal analysis.
Also, from the purchased equipment, we emphasize a completely new measuring chain for testing in the field of construction acoustics, which significantly improved this area of testing.
The new equipment will, in addition to the already reached high level of professional services, provide a further increase in our, otherwise, very wide customer base. Annually, we have about 600 active business entities with which we do business, from the smallest retail stores to the largest business systems in the country.
