The Institute’s laboratories are certified by the Swiss Accreditation Service. They carry out a variety of analyses within the framework of the Institute’s research projects and as part of the contract occupational services it provides. The laboratories focus on the physicochemical analysis of workers’ professional environments, as well as biological monitoring of their workspaces. Their mission is to provide the IST’s occupational hygienists, physicians and safety managers with an analytical platform to support patients and clients. They must also support the activities of the Institute’s scientists and PhD students within the framework of their research project.
Alongside these activities, the laboratory platform regularly collaborate with a number of international research institutes.
