This unique environment is host to the cross-pollination of 4 pillars: Research, Entrepreneurs, Education and Government.

Brightlabs is not just the next routine laboratory. Instead they focus on the complex routine- and not routine research, while keeping the customer’s request central to their work. They can apply their existing methodology to specific products or, if necessary, develop a new analysis method and validate this at the right level. Brightlabs is not a numbers factory, so in order to hit the right tone they are very serious about co-creation. Joining forces and expertise with partners and customers ensures a distinctive profiling.

As a High-end laboratory they are very well equipped for the analysis of organic and inorganic compounds and elements. In this, they are specialised in chromatographic and mass spectromic techniques, such as high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), gas chromatography (GC), and ion chromatography (IC), also combined with mass spectrometry such as LC-MS/MS and GC-MS/MS. In addition to chromatographic equipment, Brightlabs has ICP-OES and ICP-MS equipment and element analysis also belongs to their field of expertise.

Brightlabs is the laboratory for all analytical matters for the pharmaceutical industry (physical, chemical, and micro biological analyses). From resource analysis in conformity to the pharmacopoeia, purity of a drug-substance, to QC analysis of drug-products. The combination of their opium exemption, combined with GMP accreditation, makes Brightlabs an important partner for the analysis of cannabis and related materials for both the Pharma-, Food-, and supplements sector.
Also in Food industry Brightlabs works in three pillars: R&D, complex routine and routine. Within these three pillars they analyse both the active ingredients in fruits and vegetables, as unwanted substances such as crop protection agents and heavy metals. While doing this, they usually focus on the divergent analysis questions.
In the field of Water and Soil Research, they perform chemical analyzes to determine, among other things, trace elements in soil and water samples, in addition to regular analyzes such as organic matter and dry weight determinations.
