Chemical testing laboratory of ITV Denkendorf Produktservice GmbH (ITVP)

Chemical and physical testing to characterize polymers and chemicals, especially for absorbable and non-absorbable medical devices made from them.

Service overview (selection):

  • Determination of the inherent or relative viscosity of polymers
  • Determination of residual moisture (KF titration)
  • Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC)
  • Residual solvent content determination by means of headspace GC
  • GC-MS (e.g. for determination of residual monomer content)
  • NMR spectrometry (identity, composition)
  • FTIR spectrometry (e.g. ATR technique and IR microscope)
  • UV/VIS spectrometry (e.g. dye content measurements)
  • Soxhlet extraction
  • Determination of elements by means of optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES)
