Analytical Services

ENPHO laboratory is accredited by Nepal Bureau of Standard and Metrology (NBSM) under the NEPLAS system based on ISO 17025 and is audited for quality control both by internal and external auditors. Furthermore, Quality Management System (QMS) is being implemented in the laboratory as provided by registered body – Quality & Environmental Management Service (QEMS), Kathmandu, Nepal.

 

Different environmental samples like water, wastewater, urine, soil&compost,food& feed stuffand airsamples are analysed in ENPHO laboratory.

 

The laboratory provides sampling bottles (sterilized or with chemical preservatives) as per the requirements of the analysis. ENPHO laboratory also provides sample collection services; extra cost for sample collection will be charged.

 

The laboratory also provides facilities to researchers, scholars and students to conduct their laboratory works under the guidance of laboratory personnel.
