DOC-Labor was founded in 1995 by Dr. Stefan Huber as a spin-off from the University of Karlsruhe.
Today, after 22 years of activity it is perhaps allowed to say that the endeavour was a success.

DOC-Labor is a fully independent private company.

Since 1995, we have conducted over 50.000 water analyses with the LC-OCD-OND method.
Thus, much empirical and systematic knowledge in the interpretation of data has been gathered.
