Characterization and evaluation of products and processes

By using our broad analytical chemistry knowledge and experience you can avoid investing in expensive equipment and resources. We support you in product registration, a faster time to market and an increase of product quality. By characterizing your materials we help you to identify gaps and improve your application performance. Through our failure analysis we support you in optimizing your products and processes. With our research mindset we can help you analyze complex matrices and non-standard samples.  



Solving your challenges using our expertise in analytical chemistry

Organized by the Pivot Park Community (January 19th, 2021)

In this webinar we introduced the Expert Capability Center Deventer (ECCD), Nouryon’s global analytical laboratory where 40 experts in analytical, material and environmental sciences tackle complex challenges. We exemplified our effective multidisciplinary way of working using case studies in the fields of R&D, regulatory compliance, and manufacturing. The slides, including the detailed back-up slides can be downloaded here. For more questions or interest, please contact us.
