Wood preservatives require testing to make them safe to use

Wood preservatives are biocides. The active substance and the formulation require testing to make sure the product is safe to use with respect to human health and the environment.

LAUS could support you with:

  • Stability studies
  • Chemical analyses/5-batch
  • Physico-chemical properties
  • Aquatic toxicology
  • Environmental fate
  • In vitro toxicology

Detergents Testing

Detergents, home care and industrial & institutional cleaning products require testing to ensure the safety of the environment and human health. There are different frameworks to comply with:

  • Regulation (EC) No 648/2004 on detergents
  • EU Ecolabel
  • Wasch- und Reinigungsmittelgesetz
  • EPA’s Safer Choice Program / CleanGredients

LAUS offers the required experimental endpoints:

  • Ready Biodegradability
  • Aquatic studies
  • In vitro Eye and Skin testing
  • Mutagenicity

LAUS Fluthilfe - this year's charitable donation

In view of the tragic flood disaster in the Ahr valley, we have decided to make our charitable donation this year not just for Christmas, but immediately and as directly as possible. We support our local fire brigade association, which helps directly in one of the affected communities, Mayschoss, and thus purchases urgently needed items. In case you want to join: VR-Bank Südpfalz, Feuerwehrverein Neustadt-Süd, Purpose: Hochwasserhilfe Mayschoß, IBAN: DE40 5486 2500 0106 7210 36

Angesichts der tragischen Flutkatastrophe im Ahrtal haben wir uns entschlossen, unsere diesjährige caritative Spende nicht erst zu Weihnachten, sondern umgehend und so direkt wie möglich zu tätigen. Wir unterstützen den Feuerwehrverein Neustadt-Süd, der direkt in einer der betroffenen Gemeinden, Mayschoß, hilft und damit dringend benötigte Gegenstände anschafft. Falls Sie sich anschließen möchten: VR-Bank Südpfalz, Feuerwehrverein Neustadt-Süd, Verwendungszweck: Hochwasserhilfe Mayschoß, IBAN: DE40 5486 2500 0106 7210 36 #LAUSgroup #Mayschoß

More capacities for Ready Biodegradability studies acc. OECD 301 A, B, D, F, 310

We have doubled our capacities for Ready Biodegradability testing to be able to offer better timelines despite the high demand we are currently experiencing. In the picture you see the brand new Oxitop respirometers for electronically monitoring the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) during the aerobic biodegradability study according to OECD 301F.

We test:

  • Cosmetic products and ingredients
  • Detergents, cleaning and laundry products
  • Chemicals
  • For Water Hazard Classification
  • Polymers
  • Lubricants
  • And many more

For China REACH, MEE Order No.12 brings three main changes in the data requirements:

  • Physico-chemical test data from non-Chinese laboratories are accepted
  • In-vitro skin and eye irritation studies are accepted if the results are conclusive
  • Additional requirements based on P and B potential (Persistence and Bioaccumulation), e.g. toxicological data, sediment chironomid test, etc.

COSMOS standards

LAUS could support you with Biodegradability testing to meet the COSMOS requirements and definitions for organic and/or natural cosmetics. For chemically processed agro-ingredients the accepted methods and criteria for biodegradability are:

- OECD 301A, percentage of degradation > 70%

- OECD 301B, OECD 301D, OECD 301F or OECD 310 meet a percentage degradation > 60%

Dissolution in body fluids

LAUS could support you with studies simulating physiological conditions in the gastrointestinal tract after food consumption required by EFSA for Nanomaterials in food. A short simulation of mouth conditions, followed by a gastric phase at a pH of 3 for 2 h and an intestinal phase at a pH of 7 for 2 h in a static set-up provides information for the “risk assessment of the application of nanoscience and nanotechnologies in the food and feed chain” (EFSA Journal 2018;16(7):5327).

Currently we are working on dynamic/flow studies to complement these studies.

GLP status confirmed

We are proud to announce that LAUS has passed the regular inspection by the authorities of the state of Rheinland-Pfalz and our GLP status has been confirmed. The originally appointed date in November 2020 had been postponed due to the pandemic measures. This has been the first on site audit in a GLP laboratory in Rheinland-Pfalz since then. Although it has been conducted under very strict stipulations to avoid any risk of infection, all areas could be inspected without exception.

Sustainability is very important to us

Sustainability is very important to us. The heart of our laboratory, the technical equipment, has a high power consumption.

Our photovoltaic system has produced about 330 MWh of clean electricity in the past 10 years which equals a CO2 reduction of 250 t!
