ARGUS- Chemical Analysis Lab

As a 100 % subsidiary company of one of the leading ink manufacturers for low-migration inks - Jänecke + Schneemann Druckfarben GmbH- has Argus Analysen Service GmbH a broad expertise in all aspects of analysis techniques, on the other hand the knowledge about colours and their preparation.

Our analytical lab offers the most basic test methods for migration analysis of printed food packaging. We use the method of the analytical chromatography in combination with mass spectrometry. The chromatography serves to the separation of mixtures of substances into their individual components. Then the mass spectrometry provides information on the mass of the separated substances. Like a fingerprint, the substances are characterized and identified by their fragmentation patterns.

The available analytical methods, such as qualitative, quantitative, target screening and non-target screening analyses by GC-MS, LC-MS, LC-HRMSMS and IR, are of course also offered to customers outside of the printing ink sector.

We will be happy to discuss your analytical question with you and clarify whether the desired analysis can be carried out at our analytical lab.
