Confirmatory Analyses
Positive residue findings are confirmed qualitatively and quantitatively by the German state laboratories using a so called "confirmatory method". A mass spectrometric method is applied identifying and determining the analytes.
At Eye Level
GALAB has validated all its methods for the determination of veterinary drugs according to the decision of the European Commisssion 2002/657/EC (cc-alpha, cc-beta). We offer a quality of analyses at eye level with the state authorities.
