Lodiag continuously improves its analytical services through multiple R&D projects carried out internally.

Automation of LODIAG-C and LODIAG-G analyzes 


The analyzes carried out physically on mass spectrometers are already largely automated (sample changers, in-line solid phase extraction, etc.). To go further, LODIAG is actively developing software for the computer processing of the data generated. The Aquanti® suite aims to automate as much as possible the quality control steps of the data generated, the detection and validation of compounds present in the sample (LODIAG-C) as well as the generation of analysis reports. 

Our goal: to reduce analysis times and generate faultless analysis reports in terms of quality. 

Continuous improvement of the chemical library 


LODIAG-C targeted analyzes are based on the use of a chemical library that is unique in the world, making it possible to identify and quantify, by dosed additions, more than 850 molecules in a single injection! Thanks to its customer and R&D projects, Lodiag continually identifies new micropollutants of interest which are added to our database after having been finely characterized (MSMS spectrum, LOD, LOQ, retention time, adducts, interference with other compounds …). 

Our goal: to provide our customers with an increasingly extensive updated list of relevant micropollutants in our LODIAG-C offer. 

Development of multiple high resolution spectral fingerprint panels 


High-resolution spectral fingerprints allow you to capture without prior notice all molecules detected in your sample in order to identify molecules of interest, whether they are known or not. The LODIAG-G service is currently optimized to capture signals associated with pesticides and drug residues. We are currently developing in parallel spectral fingerprint panels optimized for the capture of signals covering the other main classes of micropollutants (PAHs and hydrocarbons, plasticizers and phthalates, poly and perfluorinated compounds, VOCs, etc.). 

Our objective: To guarantee you the most exhaustive exploratory analyzes on the market and adapted to your needs. 

Associate the micropollutants detected with a level of toxicity 


Identifying micropollutants is good, characterizing the toxicity associated with them is better. In order to overcome this technological and scientific challenge, LODIAG works in close collaboration with multiple partners offering ever more innovative bioassay panels (eg Tame-Water as part of the HydroScreen Project, Watchfrog as part of the Paques project). LODIAG uses its internal database to develop innovative artificial intelligence tools to predict the levels of toxicity associated with micropollutants. 

Our goal: to provide our clients with scientific expertise for the interpretation of analysis results and to help them prioritize the micropollutants to be treated.
