Our Laboratory is expanding. We are pleased to welcome Ms Sarah Chaperon, who holds a Masters in Molecular Chemistry and a Chemical Engineer diploma. Ms Chaperon studied catalytic oxidation of allylic alcohols and has experience in characterisation of many molecules by several analytical methods.
Our Laboratory invested massively this year in state-of-the-art analytical instruments in order to develop fine scale analysis. While installation of our ICP spectrometer was considerably delayed because of the COVID19 pandemic, we are now pleased to inform you that beginning in March, we will be able to perform in-house metal analysis such as required for compliance with the RACJ. We will be able to perform these tests in less than five days for most products.
We always strive for excellence. As such, our Laboratory is now a member of UNILABO (Union Nationale des Laboratoires d’OEnologie, de Métier et de Recherche), a French association of oenological laboratories. This will enable us to stay at the forefront of new trends and research in the oenology field. As part of our commitment to quality, our Laboratory maintains its participation in proficiency testing. Proficiency tests from Union des OEnologues de France are the most extensive and demanding in the industry. Our Laboratory has been an active member for 3 years now and continues to show good results.
Finally, the Laboratory will be closed on Friday, April 2 and Monday April 5, 2021 for Easter Holidays. All the OEnoscience team wish you a good and safe week during the upcoming March break.
