REACH substance identification in a laboratory

Your needs : to characterize the chemical composition of your substances as part of the REACH registration process

REMINDER : REACH is a European regulation which requires that producers or importers of chemical substances, including mixtures register their substances with the ECHA (European CHemical Agency) if they produce/import more than one metric ton of said substances per year.

As part of this regulation, industrialists need to inspect and precisely characterize their substances to ensure that they comply with standards in order to be registered.

Any given substance must have a chemical name, a number and in the case of mixtures, their composition must be given (components + amounts). The quality of the data provided will influence the time it takes to add the substance to either the authorization or restriction list.

 Before filling a REACH registration request, you are looking to cooperate with an analytical laboratory to identify and name your substances…

Our solution : to provide you with our reliable, diverse and precise analytical techniques making it possible to quickly identify the chemical nature of a substance or of a mixture

Relying on a cutting edge-analytical fleet spread over 2100m² and a team of experts in chemistry and materials science, FILAB laboratory is able to assist you in obtaining REACH registration by providing analysis and identification services for all kinds of substances :

  • Custom chemical analyses for identifying substances (heavy metals, residual solvents, additives…)
  • Purity testing
  • Determination of elemental contents
  • Raw material inspection
  • Chemical reverse engineering
  • Development of analytical methods
  • Material characterization
  • Development of Substance Identification Profiles (SIP) 

To carry out these tests on all kinds of matrices, FILAB uses a diverse set of analytical techniques :

  • NMR : 1H, 13C, 17O, 31P…
  • GC-FID, GC-MS, HS-GC-MS (Gas Chromatography)
  • HPLC-MS/MS, HPLC-DAD (Liquid Chromatography)
  • IC (Ion Chromatography)
  • ICP-AES, ICP-MS
  • FTIR (Infrared Spectroscopy)
  • UV-Vis
  • DSC
  • XRD
  • TGA
  • SEM-EDX (Scanning Electron Microscopy)
