Research sections


The section receives and handles approx. 15,000 samples/year which are partial deliveries in monitoring projects, research projects and other assignments led by researchers at NIVA. 

We are all laboratory engineers with a chemical background. Our main responsibility is sample logistics including reception, registration, and labeling of samples. We sort, split, filter, preserve and prepare for further analysis both at NIVA's laboratories and at subcontractors.

We also carry out dry matter determination and other manual and physico-chemical analyses and are responsible for much of the general operation of NIVA's laboratories.
