On the basis of the laboratories of microanalysis, physical methods of research, ecological research and chromatographic analysis, the Testing Analytical Center has been created and is successfully functioning. It is accredited by the Federal Accreditation Service for technical competence and independence for testing. The center is accredited for the identification of organic substances by physical and chemical methods, determination of the composition of drinking and natural water, as well as waste water, various oils and dietary supplements, pyrogenicity and toxicity of drugs, as well as the determination of various biological indicators of experimental animals and their organs.
The center is equipped with modern precision analytical equipment, which makes it possible to carry out research on the analysis of food products, biological media, drugs and environmental objects.
The Institute is the base organization of the Chemical Research Center for Collective Use of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (CRC), which unites unique expensive instruments and installations of chemical institutes of the Novosibirsk Scientific Center in 7 areas: radio spectroscopy, optical spectroscopy, chromato-mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction analysis and X-ray spectroscopy, microanalysis, toxico-pharmacological analysis and technical service of scientific instruments.
The equipment and competencies of the Center's staff make it possible to conduct research in the field of ecology, biology, chemistry, biochemistry and medicine in accordance with international standards. The center is included in the system of centers for collective use of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and basic laboratories for ecoanalytical control in the Novosibirsk region.
The Toxic and Pharmacological Department of the Center for Collective Use conducts biological tests of chemical compounds, drugs and dietary supplements to determine the pharmacological properties (anti-inflammatory, antiulcer, wound healing, antioxidant, antiarrhythmic, psychotropic muscle relaxant, etc.) and toxicity (acute, subchronic, chronic, cumulation, local and allergenic).
The Center for International Scientific and Technical Network (STN International) and Spectral Information provides information services for fundamental and applied research institutes of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and universities using the information resources available at the NIOCH SB RAS (STN, REAXYS. SciFinder, INSPEC, SCOPUS, patent databases and collections spectral information libraries). Organizes access to electronic resources provided by various publishing houses of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Ministry of Education and Science.
