INTERLABOR

A passion for analysis


This has been our motto since 1964. Back then, Ruedi Camenzind, today Chairman of the Board of Directors of INTERLABOR BELP AG, was testing for traces of insecticides in baby food using a gas chromatograph. Today we analyze thousands of substances in every conceivable matrix. The one-man operation has developed into a globally successful service institute with clients from every segment. Our strength lies in developing tailor-made solutions together with our clients and accompanying their projects to successful completion. Our specialized analyses and modern equipment provide the necessary foundations.

Our generous laboratory building was constructed in 2008 and is situated in an attractive location – at the entrance to the beautiful Bernese Oberland – close to the Bern-Belp airport.
