CLINICAL LABORATORYThe instrumental equipment of the Laboratory

The equipment of our chemical laboratories is one of the factors that distinguishes us from our competitors. The analytical determination of the results is a significant phase of the analytical cycle of each analysis laboratory. That is why we have decided to equip the Stante Chemical Laboratories with a wide range of cutting-edge technological tools, which guarantees the achievement of high determinative sensitivity and faster and more reliable processes than traditional instruments, offering the Customer accurate and repeatable measurements.

In addition to the state-of-the-art instrumentation, we offer a high level of competence and professionalism of our laboratory technicians, constant participation in inter-laboratory evaluation circuits managed by qualified and accredited suppliers according to the ISO/IEC 17043 standard, participation in inter-comparisons with other accredited laboratories and the execution of internal quality controls (IQC) for each analytical batch.
