All equipment is certified and has operation and technical maintenance manuals.

The samples for analysis are delivered to the SAC “Composition of compounds” by customers, in accordance with the agreements signed. All samples are registered in special books. Analysis and identification are carried out according to the techniques included in the SAC “Composition of compounds” passport. The obtained data are available either on electronic or paper versions. The customer receives a report in a set form.

The SAC “Composition of compounds” organizes the attestation of equipment and facility testing at the UNIIM, the Center of Metrology and Certification “CERTIMET” of UB RAS, on a timely basis.

The SAC “Composition of compounds” has a contemporary base of documentary standards for testing and estimating the measurements quality. The updating of documentary standards is carried out in the UNIIM. A Shared Access Centre representative is responsible for the documentary standards updating.

The SAC “Composition of compounds” has special facilities for sample preparation in an appropriate form: muffle furnaces with the heating temperature up to 1200 °C, electrical plates and cabinet dryers with the heating temperature up to 400 °C, laser ablation equipment, microwave oven for autoclave acid dissolution of samples with different compositions, manual hydraulic press with the load range of 1-40 t, lab scales with weighing limits of 200 g and scale interval of 0.0001 g.
