Chemical analysis laboratory

Your needs: analyze the chemical substances that make up your finished products and raw materials

In the context of quality control, regulatory compliance or following a product failure, chemical analysis has taken an essential place in all industrial sectors. Indeed, the increasing complexity of the regulatory constraints lead the industrialists to optimize the performances of their product through a better knowledge of their chemical properties.

For this, the use of analytical chemistry allows to obtain quantitative (concentration and dosage of components) or qualitative (nature of a chemical composition) chemical analysis.

Our laboratory, specialized in chemical analysis and with state-of-the-art analytical methods, is there to help you in this process.

A chemical analysis laboratory is a laboratory where chemists and other scientists conduct chemical research, experiments and analysis to determine the composition of various substances. These laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art instruments and equipment used to measure, analyze and handle chemicals. These laboratories are staffed by trained technicians and experienced chemists who use their expertise to interpret test results on samples obtained from clinical or environmental sources. Chemical analysis laboratories can provide testing services for industrial, medical or environmental applications, such as drug potency testing...

Companies often outsource chemical analysis services to save time and money, as well as to ensure the accuracy of results. By outsourcing these services, companies can access specialized equipment, expertise and personnel that may not be available in-house. This allows them to analyze samples quickly and accurately while complying with strict regulations and standards. In addition, outsourcing allows a company to focus on its core business and reduces the need to maintain a complex laboratory infrastructure. Finally, it can save money by avoiding costly investments in training and maintenance of personnel or equipment.

Our chemical analysis laboratory performs a wide variety of tests for various applications, including raw material testing, material characterization, drug potency testing and cosmetic analysis.

There are several methods of chemical analysis testing that can be performed in a laboratory, but four common methods are:

  1. Spectroscopy: This is a technique that uses light absorption or emission to identify compounds and measure their concentrations. There are several types of spectroscopy, such as UV-Vis, infrared, and atomic absorption spectroscopy.

  2. Chromatography: This method separates a mixture into its individual components based on their interaction with a stationary phase and mobile phase. Common types of chromatography include gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, and ion chromatography.

  3. Electrochemistry: This method involves measuring the electrical properties of a sample, such as its potential or conductivity. Examples of electrochemical techniques include voltammetry and potentiometry.

  4. Gravimetric analysis: This method involves the separation and weighing of a compound to determine its quantity and purity. This method is often used to analyze samples that do not respond well to other analytical techniques.

Each of these methods has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice of method depends on the specific analytical problem being addressed.

There are many sectors of activity that may require the services of a chemical analysis laboratory. Filab specializes in providing analytical services to a variety of industries such as aeronautics and defense, the automotive industry, metallurgy, luxury, plastics, the nuclear industry and the glass industry.


Our chemical analysis laboratory also specializes in three main areas of expertise at Filab. The machines and specialities available enable us to offer cutting-edge and rare analysis services for these sectors : 


  • The medical device industry: Filab can analyze materials used in implantable devices, such as metals and polymers, to ensure biocompatibility and safety. They can also test packaging materials for sterility and durability.
  • The pharmaceutical industry: companies rely on chemical analysis labs to test their products for purity and safety. Filab provides testing services for active ingredients, contaminants, and packaging materials.
  • The cosmetics industry: this includes testing for the presence of heavy metals, allergens, and other potential contaminants in cosmetic products. They can perform stability testing to ensure that the product remains safe and effective over time. Filab's expertise in chemical analysis is valuable in helping cosmetic companies meet regulatory requirements and ensure the safety and quality of their products.
