Strong partner for analytics

IHU Geologie und Analytik GmbH (IHU) has established itself as a strong partner for contract analytics in the region of northern Saxony-Anhalt and adjacent regions. For many clients from the public sector and the private sector, the chemical laboratory is the first point of contact for environmental analysis and the soil mechanical laboratory for geoanalytical issues. IHU stands for proximity to the customer and high analytical quality and ensures this with technology from Analytik Jena.

Elemental analysis and elemental analysis at the highest level

IHU's chemical laboratory covers a very wide range of analytical methods in the field of water and soil analysis. It is a strong regional partner for public and private clients – for example, for investigations of pollutants in groundwater, soil or construction waste; Determination of the composition of drinking water or determination of the nutrient content of agricultural soils and sewage sludge. The laboratory is characterized by proximity to the customer and high quality of the services offered. Many customer relationships have existed for decades. In order to guarantee the quality of the analysis technologically, IHU relies on the analysis measurement technology of Analytik Jena, among other things. For IHU, a wide variety of factors are crucial when choosing the right system. "In addition to the methodical and technical robustness of the systems, functionality is particularly important to us. Hardware and software must be easy and logical to use. A good service from the manufacturer, who accompanies us throughout the entire service life of the devices and provides prompt support, rounds off the package for us. Analytik Jena was able to score points everywhere," says Dr. Steffi Traufelder, head of the chemical analysis laboratory, describing the decision-making process. IHU's chemical-analytical laboratory is an accredited, notified and certified laboratory. The standards to be adhered to are correspondingly high.

"An excellent overall package."

Decision-making facts

Robustness and reliability of the analyzers from Analytik Jena

Very good technology

competence in service and support

Fast response times and easy accessibility

High standards

Today, the laboratory successfully uses a whole range of Analytik Jena systems. AOX analyzers of the type multi X 2500 support the analytical experts from Stendal, among other things, in the AOX water analysis, the investigation of sewage sludge or the EOX examination, e.B. within the framework of the LAGA directive. The detection of TOC (total organic carbon) and TN b (total bound nitrogen) in solid and liquid samples is carried out using the multi N/C 2100S. For metal determination in water samples and soil extracts or digestions, IHU relies on atomic absorption spectrometers (AAS) of the contrAA 800 series, both with flame and graphite tube technology, as well as on the mercur DUO Plus mercury analyzer for mercury determination. "The devices are technically very good," explains Benita Fischer, Deputy Laboratory Manager at IHU. "To this end, we receive fast and uncomplicated support from the Analytik Jena service. An excellent overall package."
