Analyses

We offer analysis services of alcoholic beverages not only to Alko but also to authorities, producers, wholesalers and importers.

If you need the results urgently (in fewer than two weeks) or if the sample delivery is large, we ask you to contact us in advance. We will also be pleased to answer any questions about our analysis services, and to advise you on the suitable analysis.

If you need the results in less than one week, we will charge 20% extra. If you require analysis in one day, we will charge 30% extra. The delivery time depends on the laboratory’s sample situation and the type of analysis required. All types of analysis cannot be performed in one day.

The prices of the first control analyses of alcoholic beverages and the sample amounts required are shown below in Table 1. The prices have been discounted by about 15% compared to the standard prices of individual analyses. In addition to first control analyses, we offer a wide range of other analyses for alcoholic beverages, spirits and technochemical products. The prices of the most frequently requested analyses are shown in Table 2.
