Bottle set water

AGROLAB will introduce a uniform bottle set throughout Europe in the first two quarters in 2016. Easy handling of the transport box as well as optimized sample cooling are just a few significant advantages you as our customer will benefit from.


The new system will be implemented step by step, starting with our two large environmental laboratories in Bruckberg (Germany) and Deventer (the Netherlands) for the markets in Germany, Belgium, France and Spain. Subsequently, the process will be extended steadily, to all of Europe, throughout the whole GROUP.


The new bottle set combines easy handling with optimized cooling in a unique box system, which has been explicitly designed for the purposes of AGROLAB. It will be used throughout Europe for all water matrices.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • One system for all AGROLAB laboratories
  • A transport box system which is certified in regard to its capabilities (e.g. temperature and stability).
  • Preservation according to EN ISO 5667-3 and additional local criteria
  • Clear identificationof each bottle, from sampling to results, through the use of removable, self-adhesive labels with barcodes
  • Greater transport securitythrough the increased use of PE/PET bottles and the adaption of the transport box to the new bottle set
  • More stability, lighter boxes and better handling - we have reduced the requested amounts per analysis and optimized the boxes in terms of weight
  • Packagingof bottles and boxes will take place according to the sample, which makes the process more efficient on all sides. Sorting bottles is now a thing of the past
  • In combination with our customer portal ALOORA, unambiguous, unmistakable and gap-free assignment, from sampling to reporting, is a given – manual labeling or copying of information is superfluous


The soils sector is also expected to transition to the new transport system as of the third quarter of the year.


We will keep you up to date and inform you further about the ongoing implementation process via this platform.


 Additional information will be released at the beginning of February.
