Water Analysis Laboratory

There is a water hygiene laboratory in the Department of Public Health where bacteriological, physical and chemical analyzes are performed.

The water analysis laboratory of our department has been in service since 1957. In 2005, a spectrophotometer and in 2009 a photometer device was purchased and the technical possibilities of the laboratory were increased. In our laboratory, many criteria that need to be considered in drinking, using and irrigation waters can be analyzed in accordance with the new legal regulations.

The criteria for drinking, use and irrigation waters are grouped below according to their methods and are presented with the highest permissible values for these criteria and their prices in our laboratory:
