In three excellently-equipped laboratories, high-class ICB Pharma chemists develop products which are safe for the environment, distinguished for their production technology (micro- and nanoencapsulation) and effectiveness, in Health Care, Crop Solutions and Pest Innovations divisions, which are also the main three pillars of the ICB Pharma’s operations.
The research and development lab is one of the oldest divisions in the company, and its heart. It is here, where the innovative approach, hidden within the company’s DNA, to the creation of effective, unique chemical products results in development of formulas the best of which reach, in the form of products, the markets of nearly all continents. Its work is supervised by dr Janusz Świętosławski, the honorary president of ICB Pharma and spiritus movens of the company.
The process of creation of new products is co-ordinated by the Research and Development Department at ICB Pharma.
The research and development laboratory of ICB Pharma is one of few in the world where biologically-active micro-encapsulated products are manufactured, with solid and liquid nuclei,
with designable period of release of active substances. It was here that the first world’s micro-capsules were developed which release substances under the pressure of insects’ feet. Research is continually conducted on new products eliminating pests: lice, fleas, mosquitos, ticks, or mites.
The advanced chemical and processing equipment allows the chemical-development laboratory of ICB Pharma to develop any product, both in the sector of cosmetics, agrochemistry and medicine.
The raw materials warehouse located at the back of the laboratory covers several thousand items and is a collection of unique samples from all over the world.
In the analytical laboratory of ICB Pharma, company’s specialists carry out physico-chemical tests
and chemical analyses of the company’s products which are introduced in the market. They test, for instance, the appearance, PH, combustibility of solids, viscosity, surface pressure, and they perform tests of accelerated aging of products. Among other things, they also analyse technical properties of crop protection products and biocide products marketed by ICB Pharma.
