Small enough to care and big enough to deliver



ECHA draft decisions

According to its “Progress in evaluation 2021” report ECHA performed 300 full compliance checks (CCHs) and 227 testing proposal examinations (TPEs) and issued 467 draft decisions: 280 on the abovementioned compliance checks and  187 on testing proposal examinations. That means 93% of dossiers require additional information.

Number of requests in 278 compliance check decisions:

  • Mutagenicity/Genotoxicity 260
  • Long-term aquatic toxicity 344
  • Physico-chemical properties 60

Number of requests in 165 testing proposal decisions 79/41/8

  • Mutagenicity/Genotoxicity 79
  • Long-term aquatic toxicity 41
  • Physico-chemical properties 8

LAUS has a great team with particular expertise in these areas and a lot of experience with difficult substances. If you are concerned and need additional data, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Let us proof that your product is readily biodegradable!

The heart of Ready Biodegradability testing according to OECD 301F (Manometric Respirometry) is the OxiTop®- multi-parameter measuring device. It allows us to monitor the BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) during the study as a parameter for biodegradation.

LAUS has once more increased their capacities for Ready Biodegradability testing and invested in 50 new Oxi-Tops due to high demand.

Late DUIN not too late!

If you did not notify HSE and wish to continue to import EU REACH registered substances into Great Britain at or above one tonne per year, you can still submit a notification, if eligible to do so. You should do this as soon as possible. Defra has committed to exploring alternative arrangements for transitional registrations including extending deadlines to provide full registration data.

LAUS setzt ein Ausrufezeichen beim Fechtsport!

Im Zeichen der Corona-Krise sind besonders Hallensportarten von den Restriktionen betroffen. So sinnvoll hohe Sicherheitsmaßnahmen auch sind, so aufwändig ist es für Vereine, Wettkämpfe zu organisieren. Anlass für LAUS, auszuhelfen und zu unterstützen! Dietmar Kuhn von LAUS war es wichtig zu zeigen, dass zurzeit mit hohen Auflagen Sport in Rheinland-Pfalz möglich ist. – Mit Hilfe von LAUS konnten sich am 04./05.12.2021 in Mainz nicht nur Rheinland-Pfälzer, sondern Fechter aus fast dem gesamten Bundesgebiet zwischen Lütjensee und München zum Winter-Cup in Mainz versammeln. Der Winter-Cup in Mainz ist Teil einer Turnierserie, die von den Leistungszentren Nürnberg, Eislingen, Mainz und Künzelsau organisiert wird. Säbler*Innen in den Klassen U9 bis U17 konnten sich in ihren Altersklassen messen und so die Besten ausmachen. Zeigten sich die Gäste aus den anderen Bundesländern anfänglich verwundert, ob der klaren 2G+ Regeln, so überwog am Ende die Freude, dass Hallensport trotz Corona möglich ist. Angesichts der großen Begeisterung und dem allgemein hohen Niveau waren die Ergebnisse schon nahezu nebensächlich. Dennoch möchte LAUS den Rheinland-Pfälzischen Siegern aus Kaiserlautern (Silantyev/Aktive) und Mainz (Barth/U9, Larres/U17, Graudins/U17+Aktive) herzlichst gratulieren.

Characterization of Nanoparticles

Did you know that there are two direct techniques of characterizing nanoparticles <100 nm?

You need a multitude of analytical tools to describe a nanomaterial sufficiently:

FTIR with ATR / XRF or ICP-MS / XRD incl. Rietveld analysis / BET / Zeta Potential / DLS / PSD / EDX…


But transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) are the only direct methods to analyze particles below 100 nm in diameter (in at least one dimension) and to describe primary particles in size and form as well as their agglomeration state appropriately.
