Physiochemical and Environmental Fate Tests

Befüllung eines Probengebers.

Our services in the field of testing according to GLP regulations

We offer you the determination of the identity or Sameness as well as the further characterization of your substance in the areas of physical-chemical parameters and environmental fate analysis.

This means that we enable you to decide on the right SIEF with the help of our tests. Only registrants/importers of substances with the same or sufficiently similar identity ("Sameness") can join together in a common dossier submission.

You assure that the REACH requirements for registration/authorization of substances are fulfilled.

For other customers, CURRENTA Analytics is already a one-stop shop for the tests required to submit a dossier under worldwide regulations.

How can we support you?

Service description

For the registration/authorisation of substances, REACH requires extensive characterisation of these substances in the areas of physical-chemical parameters and environmental fate analysis.

However, this process is about more than just determining inherent material properties. It is also used to establish the substance identity, which plays a key role in choosing the right SIEF: Only registrants/importers of substances with the same or sufficiently similar identity (“sameness”) can submit a single joint dossier.

The CURRENTA Analytics laboratory for physiochemical parameters can assist you with these processes, both when it comes to determining the identity and/or sameness of your substance and identifying additional characteristics. We have a number of methods at our disposal, the use and results of which are determined and interpreted by qualified experts.

In addition, we offer testing of nanomaterials and polymers. Here, we offer tests for residual monomer content, identity tests, and reports of the tests that conform to official requirements, which you can also use to submit dossiers under worldwide regulations. With us, you get your investigations from a single source.
