  • Facilities - Equipment

One of the strengths of EMAS Center is its equipment. EMAS Center invests in state-of-the-art, specialized equipment with high precision, ensuring fast and accurate sample quality analysis requirements, and minimizing analysis errors. Technical equipment for physicochemical and microbiological laboratories are equipped synchronously, meeting domestic and international standards, and are capable of meeting service and scientific and technological activities.

EMAS invested over VND 2 billion for the ICP –AVIO200 Plasma atomic emission system and more than VND 4 billion for the 7890B gas chromatography system, which is one of the most modern spectrum analyzing equipment.

Besides equipment for physical and chemical analysis, the Center has also built a laboratory exclusively for microbiological analysis. The microbiology room is fully invested with equipment as well as a system of rooms that strictly comply with the conditions of microbiological analysis. The rooms are equipped with UV light system, passbox receiving separate samples, separate room partitions to avoid cross-contamination between areas to analyze microbiological criteria such as E. coli and Coliform .. on many water samples.

In addition to analysis in the laboratory, EMAS Center with its fully equipped field equipment- such as, emission measuring devices (testo 350), multi-indicators, DO, pH, ozone, temperature, humidity, wind speed meters (TESTO, and other sampling equipment- is confident in its ability to meet the needs of customers in monitoring services, taking samples and making quick field measurements for a variety of sample platforms such as water samples (surface water, groundwater, sewage, rainwater, underground water ...), air samples and soil samples, mud, sediments, etc.
