Tailor-made chemical analysis

You will not often find standard and routine analytical work at VITO. The task of your future lab is to solve analytical problems that usually require a customised approach.

For this we have a whole range of analytical equipment, applications and experienced colleagues with complementary expertise on board.

The lab rarely carries out standard measurements, but always works according to the client's requirements. More and more companies contact VITO's analytical lab with a challenge to which they cannot immediately find an answer themselves.

Insight into chemical issues usually starts with a chemical analysis. Our analytical team proposes a plan of approach and helps find solutions.

VITO tries to offer each client a tailor-made proposal.

The companies you will be working with are players in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical industries, etc. In short, anyone with a complex question can find their way to the VITO analysis lab.
