Laboratories & Service centres

As a leading environmental laboratory ALcontrol strives to deliver reliability and quality. This is realised through the knowledge that our personnel have built up over the years and by using the latest analytical methods available with the help of sophisticated analytical equipment.

The quality of results is also established through personal attention and maintaining a strict and ambitious internal quality management system.

The primary process of the laboratories can be divided into 7 steps, all strictly managed by internal control systems. The steps are as follows:

  • Client order, received by @MIS or other order tools
  • Temperate controlled transport by temperate controlled vans and/or validated transport cooling boxes
  • Sample registration in our local service centre or at the main laboratory
  • Sample preparation
  • Sample analyses
  • Result validation
  • Reporting

By using state-of-art barcode systems the samples can be tracked and traced during the complete process controlled by the Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). All ALcontrol laboratories run a LIMS system monitoring the process and in addition providing the management tools to achieve a lean production platform. 95% of the results are processed automatically, due to a high rate (at least 95%) of the instrument having an interface with the LIMS system.

The European laboratories and service centers of ALcontrol are situated:
