new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry

In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.


The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.


Contact for such types of analysis: Franky Puype, phone: +420 577 601 703, e-mail: fpuype@itczlin.cz

Determination of phthalic acid esters according to requirements of CPSC

In June 2018 analytical laboratory ITC accredited new procedure for determination of phthalic acid esters in consumer products according to requirements of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.4. New standard came in force on April 25, 2018 and released old one No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.3.

FachPack 2018

Dear business friends, we invite you to visit our exposition at the International Trade Fair for the packaging industry FachPack 2018, which will be held 25. 9. – 27. 9. 2018 in Nuremberg. Hall 9, Stand no. 9-211. Vouchers for entry are available, if you are interested, please contact Mrs Ing. Barbora Hajkova, email: bhajkova@itczlin.cz 

Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior


Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.

Testing » Tested products

Within activities of the construction testing laboratory, services determined for survey and testing of buildings or roads have their independent position.  The diagnostics of buildings and constructions includes constructional and technical surveys, measurement and monitoring of physical quantities, loading tests of buildings, diagnostics of bridge constructions etc. For building and technical surveys, field tests are used, which are supplemented with laboratory tests if need.


Client Handbook (conformity assessment manual)        


  • Building and physical surveys
  • Surveys are usually combined with laboratory analyses intended for determination of material moisture and chemical composition of brickwork and assessment of base soil of the building with respect to capillary rise conditions.
  • Information about the moisture profile outside and inside the building, about the brickwork condition
  • Climatological information
  • Long-term influence of the external and internal environment, in which the building is and by which its lifetime period is influenced.
  • Material moisture determination


  Building and traffic constructions
  • physical properties
  • bearing capacity
  • moisture
  • water permeability, vapour permeability
