GALAB - Competence since 1992
It all started in 1992 in northern Germany. Just a few years later, the first major project immediately caused a sensation: On behalf of the authorities, GALAB analyzed the silt of the river Elbe. Subsequently, the laboratory from Hamburg-Bergedorf quickly became the competent partner for state supervisory authorities when it came to analyzing the determination of organotin and organomercury compounds in the environment and in foodstuffs. Today, the company still is world leading in the analysis of arsenic compounds.
In the field of pesticide analysis, GALAB has been a talking point since 2006, in particular with the introduction of the multi-method GALAB Pesticides 500plus®, a groundbreaking method for the determination of pesticides. Its an important milestone that underlines the core competence of the company to this day. No need to say, that the questions in this area are becoming ever more diverse and complex.
By now, GALAB has 160 employees. Residue and contaminants analysis are a main field of activity, but organic products and baby food are taking up an increasing share of the work. Food is a major part of GALAB's analysis, with the remainder being consumer goods such as sanitary or packaging, films and textiles, and, of course, the environment. National and international customers rely on the indispensable expertise and enjoy working together as partners, in which dialogue plays a decisive role. The test certificates issued by GALAB are treasured as a promotional instrument.
