Service d'analyse chimique de la CRIECB

Find out about our expetise for your analysis

Our laboratory of analytical chemistry is equipped with the finest instruments at the top of the technology. Our 24 different instruments allow a wide range of chemical analysis in liquid, gas or solid phase. To this day, we are recognized as the only laboratory of analytical chemistry in Canada entirely dedicated to biomass analysis

Our experience is at your service for extraction, identification and quantification of a large number of molecules through the development of analytical methods which, in some cases, can be implemented directly to your industrial process as Process Analytical Tools (PAT).
