Short history

The Laboratory of Water Chemistry was founded in 1979, under the name Laboratory of Atomic Spectroscopy, as part of the Automation and Metrology Center of the Academy of Sciences of Moldova. In 2007, due to reorganization and optimization, the laboratory became a part of the Institute of Chemistry. 

The laboratory was accredited by the National Center of Accreditation of the Republic of Moldova (MOLDAC) in 1994, 1997, 2000, 2007, 2011, 2015 and 2019.

Research areas
  • Development of new procedures and improvement of the existing ones;
  • Broadening the spectrum of analyzed objects and the number of determined parameters;
  • Improving metrological characteristics of the procedures;
  • Evaluation of chemical composition of water from different sources (ground, surface, bottled) and its classification according to drinking water quality standards.
