Our Laboratories – Our Examinations
The Analysis and Calibration Unit (ACU) Laboratories are characterized by their high readiness and having:
- Dedicated qualified / well-trained staff with extensive analytical experience.
- A number of advanced and developed analytical devices, including several analyzes and tests.
The specialization in our laboratories’ work is our excellence title in the analytical work and our permanent motivation to develop and keep up the analysis methods with international accredited testing methods. Thus, the different society needs and the wishes of its various sectors will be achieved and complied.
Chemical Analysis Laboratory and Biological Analysis Laboratory
Several materials and commodities are subjected to various chemical and biological tests carried out by both: Chemical Analysis and Biological Analysis laboratories, and these materials include:
This test examines the foodstuffs and raw materials and their viability for human consumption through microbial and chemical tests; using the latest advanced devices, as well as the latest international accredited methods adopted by the Palestine Accreditation Unit (PALAC) at Palestine Standards Institution (PSI).
This test examines detergents and their raw materials, and to investigate their quality conformity with the Palestinian standards through using the latest methods accredited by PALAC for the public and private sectors.
This test examines animal feed and their raw materials, contents from chemical polluting materials, nutritional value and their quality conformity with the Palestinian Standards; using the latest methods accredited by PALAC for the Public and Private Sectors.
These tests examine polymer and plastic materials including testing of plastic (PVC) pipes and plastic water reservoirs made from polymer materials, and their conformity with the international quality standards using the latest methods accredited by PALAC.
A series of physical, chemical and biological tests, as well as a number of water-specific analysis.
Advanced Analysis Laboratory
This test examines medicines, cosmetics and their raw materials using the latest international methods and modern technologies; to investigate whether they match the global medicines references such as the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) and British Pharmacopeia (BP) standards.
These samples are offered by the Ministry of Health (MoH) and related factories such as pharmaceutical factories, veterinary medicines, cosmetics and other institutions.
This test examines air's major formulating gases in the atmosphere and volatile organic compounds in addition to analyzing the air suspended particulates, such as dust from the Palestinian quarries and crushers, factories, complexes and parkades to ensure that they meet the Palestinian and international standards and specifications.
Calibration and Validation Laboratory
The Calibration and Validation Laboratory at ACU is well-equipped with all proper work constituents, in appropriate quantities and qualities of calibration equipments, apparatus and tools required to provide professional and standard conditions, and their accuracy commensurate with the requirements of the Palestinian market.
This Laboratory has followed a special working system based on the last version of the International Quality Standard for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (ISO17025). In addition, the laboratory has controlled temperature and humidity through an air-conditioned room.
The Calibration and Validation Laboratory provides its services in the following fields:
This accredited service holds a certificate of accreditation No. 32 in the fields described in its appendix and provides its services in the field of industrial calibration of laboratories and the diverse production institutions of the Palestinian market.
This service is under construction pending the completion of the legal authorization procedures from the National Measurement Directorate in the Palestine Standards Institution (PSI).
Toxicology and Suspicious Materials Laboratory
Poison and Drugs Abuse Analysis Test
This test examines drugs of abuse, toxins, suspicious packages/materials and is used for investigative matters of the Ministry of Justice and various institutions concerned with citizens protection in Palestine.
