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.

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.

More information concerning phthalate testing are available here

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.

Toys and Children’s Products

Testing » Tested products

The marketing of toys and products for children under three years of age is regulated by harmonized European legislation as well as by national – Czech legislation. Until 19 July 2011, toys are subject to the European Directive 88/378/EEC, which shall – after that date – be replaced by Directive 2009/48/EC of 18 June 2009 on the safety of toys. Only such toys are allowed to enter the EU market, which are in consistence with this legislation and, pursuant to the new Directive, also bear the CE marking and are accompanied by an EC declaration of conformity. For products designed for children under three years of age (sold on the Czech market), which include also toys for children under three years of age, there is an obligation to comply with the requirements of Decree No. 84/2001 Coll. implementing Act No. 258/2000 Coll., on Public Health Protection. These products, at all trade levels except for retail trade, must always be accompanied by a written declaration confirming that the products comply with the hygienic requirements laid down by the Decree. Such declaration is to be issued by the manufacturer, importer or authorized representative based on a compliance assessment of the results of the product tests with the hygienic requirements laid down by the above-mentioned Decree.
