The Laboratory is a joint project of two Academic excellences of Apulia Region, the Department of Soil, Plant and Food Sciences (Di.S.S.P.A.) of the University of Bari “Aldo Moro” and the Department of Civil, Environmental, Territorial, Building Engineer and Chemistry of the Polytechnic University of Bari (D.I.C.A.T.E.Ch).

The advanced state-of-the-art instrumentation available and the highly skilled researchers involved in the project allow the “Micro X-ray Lab” to provide a valuable and qualified scientific support to private enterprises and public institutions in the field of environmental and agricultural issues.

In addition, exploiting the advantages of the non destructive analytical techniques available in the Laboratory and the multidisciplinary skills of the staff, the “Micro X-ray Lab” can offer a wide selection of services for the chemical and physical characterization of a number of materials: soils, sediments, rocks, wastes, fertilizers, recycled materials, atmospheric particles, agrifood products, cultural heritage pieces, biological samples, and so on…
