Automation technology, measuring and control equipment and laboratory equipment – Testing and certification at the VDE Institute

Quality, safety and reliability play a crucial role when it comes to measuring and control technology along with automation technology. Not only is this important for liability reasons, but also as an image factor and, last but not least, it is seen as a competitive advantage. From measurement and testing equipment to analysis equipment, incubators and even PLC systems, the VDE Testing and Certification Institute offers a wide range of testing services in this field.

Pipetting in the laboratory

Laboratory equipment

There is an elevated risk of injury in laboratory operation due to radiation, infection, fire, poisonous gases, electric shock, explosion and mechanical hazards. Laboratory equipment must reduce these hazards to a minimum so that the hazards for the user and the surrounding area are reduced to an acceptable level.
