Working methods, experience, competence and independence

The testing laboratory of Analytik Service Obernburg employs about 50 qualified chemists, physicists, engineers, technicians and laboratory assistants.

Our customers place a great deal of value on complete analytical services from a single source. Well educated, experienced staff with long-standing experience as well as high-tech instruments worth several million Euros enable us to cover the entire range from standard analysis through the solution of difficult problems. 

Consulting, the conversion of your problems or questions into analytical measuring tasks, qualified measurement(s) as well as the interpretation and assessment of the results is our service to you. In many cases, a customer-specific solution to a problem and/or a correlation with the process is possible.

Thanks to many years of affiliation with the research department of a large company in the chemical industry, the employees of Analytik Service Obernburg have a comprehensive knowledge and experience of a physical and chemical basis.

The service centre is independent of any production. As a result of this, there are no conflicts of interest concerning the utilization of research and project results.


As an accredited testing laboratory (ISO 17025), absolute confidentiality for our clients is, of course, guaranteed. At your request, an individual confidentiality agreement can also be set up. As opposed to public and (half) governmental institutes, as an independent testing laboratory we have no disclosure obligations. 


Analytik Service Obernburg was part of the large Akzo Nobel group until 1999. As part of the central research department, the Analytik Service supported the company in the process development of new chemicals, man-made fibres (cellulose fibres and synthetic fibres), membranes and coatings. As there was already a reduction in research activities at this time, analytics increasingly opened up to external companies, especially from the automotive supplier and medical technology sectors, while the central laboratory attached to production continued to be mainly responsible for testing raw materials, auxiliaries and the various fibre products produced for the site.

With Akzo Nobel's focus on coatings production, the Obernburg fibre site, and with it the research, was transferred to the newly founded fibre company Acordis GmbH. After a short interim period, this company was split up into individual companies and the analytic service was added to the site management company, Mainsite GmbH, which was founded in 2003. The non-production site services were combined in Mainsite.
