At the Institute of Organic Chemistry, ND Zelinsky opened and began working international think tank. Its creation was part German manufacturer of Analytik Jena AG and the Russian company "Interlab." The renovated rooms of the institute’s laboratory has collected a unique and most advanced on the market analytical spectroscopy equipment worth several hundred thousand euros.
In particular, the focus is set multielementny analyzer multi EA 5000 research settings total sulfur, carbon, nitrogen and chlorine. It also commissioned an atomic absorption spectrometer with a source of continuous spectrum contrAA 700, which allows the simultaneous determination of samples is more than 70 elements of the periodic DI Mendeleev. By this device the unique prefix for the direct analysis of solid samples SSA 600. "The market test equipment to this unit does not have analogues", — says the president of the company "Interlab" Alexander Vedenin.
The company "Interlab", formed in 1997, since 2011 is the exclusive distributor for Analytik Jena in Russia.
The German company Analytik Jena AG was founded in 1990. Its initial capital was only six thousand marks of the former GDR. The company started with sales of analytical instrumentation. But two years later, AJ teamed up with the famous design company IDC, specializing in the production of elemental analyzers. Several years later, Analytik Jena acquired the analytical department of the company Carl Zeiss, and with it a great experience, knowledge, research and production potential accumulated over 160 years of existence of the company. In 1997, in the Analytik Jena joined the company Docter Optic Eisfeld GmbH — a manufacturer of optics and optical components. "It is a small company, which initially worked a few people — said the Prime Minister of Thuringia (Germany) Christina Liberkneht, who attended the opening ceremony of the think tank — has turned into one of the most significant innovation of enterprises of the Federal State of Thuringia."
"The idea is to open in Moscow think tank with the most advanced equipment, we came a long time ago. But at that time we did not have reliable partners, which have now become the Institute of Organic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, combines basic scientific knowledge and skilled professionals, the company Analytik Jena AG — the manufacturer of the modern German analytical equipment and, of course, the company " Interlab "that will provide a quality service. Combining the potentials of the three organizations — said Alexander Vedenin — can elegantly solve complex analytical problems. "
"We are very serious about the Russian market. Before modern Russia, with impressive prospects. The country has huge scientific and economic potential. That is why we have decided together with "Interlab" invest in the project of creating an international think tank, which we hope will become a reference for those who are engaged in advanced research and development in Russia ", — said Klaus Berka, CEO and founder of Analytik Jena AG.
The new center will conduct research in cooperation with institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, universities, enterprises of various spheres of activity and industrial institutes. The staff of these organizations have already expressed their desire to work on a modern high-tech equipment.
The center will continually work young professionals who own methods of analytical chemistry and striving to master advanced technology. Young scientists will conduct tests to create new methods of analysis of various facilities to meet the growing demands of modern production and analytical chemistry, in order to continue to use them as arbitration.
The lab will also be used as a demonstration center, and in one of the rooms is expected to conduct training to work on the equipment of Analytik Jena. Thus, customers who are interested German equipment can not only see it, but also to study samples of materials created by them, to participate in seminars and workshops.
"We are confident that the center will allow users to not only see the unique-art technology, but also help in finding answers to global issues faced by scientists engaged in various fields of science. We also hope that the opening of the center will promote the development of Russian fundamental and applied science, as well as participate in large international projects ", — said Vedenin.
