Services offered by IBW


A very important task of the IBW research group is the provision of (analytical) services both to the industry and government. This service is performed by several very experienced members of our staff.

Our focus:

  • pure analytical work
  • a thorough interpretation of the obtained results
  • presented in an extensive report

Why are we different?

We work on specific customer requirements, such as determination of unknown components with newly developed analytical methods and / or sample preparation techniques

​We also provide the most common routine analysis, but we are a not accredited laboratory.

Some examples of former analytical work and available lab- and pilot-scale testing:

Analytical Work Lab- and Pilot-scale Testing
  • Identification of unknown organic (e.g. plasticizers) and inorganic species by ICP, FTIR and GC-MS in polymers
  • Tensile strength testing
  • Determination of molecular weight by intrinsic viscosity (ISO 1628)
  • Determination of chemical resistance of polymer films (NBN/ISO 6529)
  • Flame testing (UL 94)
  • Heavy metal analysis with ICP
  • Flash point of e.g. paint formulations
  • Water analysis with Hach-Lange (DR2080) spectrophotometer (COD, nutrients, …)
  • Kjeldahl nitrogen
  • Pathogen measurement
  • Gas measurement - CO2, CH4
  • Chlorofyl extraction from algae
  • Membrane filtration
  • Activated sludge treatment
  • Sand filtration
  • Activated carbon filtration
  • Ion exchange
  • Advanced oxidation (e.g. ozone and H2O2/UV)
  • Jar testing
  • Corrosion testing
  • Distillation
  • Gas absorption
  • Liquid-liquid extraction
  • Biologic waste water treatment
  • Anaerobic digestion (UASB, batch, semi-continous)
  • Wastewater treatment with Algae
  • Constructed wetlands
  • Bioreactors for fermentations (batch - fed-batch) working volume between 2 to 30 L
  • Microfiltration unit (can be coupeld to previous bioreactors)
  • Microbiologic L2-lab - also rapid methods (e.g. Vidas)
Analytical and Microbiological work
  • Microbial analysis in food and process water in food systems (pathogens, spoilage, benificial microorganisms – bacteria, yeast, fungi)
  • Estimation of Microbial and Chemical hazards (risk assessment)
  • Bioactivity screening: antimicrobial, antioxidative, enzyme-inhibiting activities
  • Determination of bioactive and nutritional important components (e.g. minerals, phenolic compounds, phytate, fatty acids, proteins, lipid and protein oxidations, antioxidants)
  • In vitro digestion studies to evaluate bioaccessibility of food components
  • Enzyme activity measurements and enzymatic testing in food systems
