Multi-access Chemical Centers

N.N. Vorozhtsov Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry
of Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences


The Testing Center certified by the Federal Accreditation Service for technical competence and independence has been established and is now successfully operating basing on the Laboratory of Microanalysis, the Laboratory of Physical Methods of Investigation, and the Laboratory of Ecological Research and Chromatographic Analysis.
The Center is equipped with modern high-precision analytical equipment that allow one to analyze food and industrial products, biological media, pharmaceuticals, and environmental objects.


The Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry is the basis organization for the Multi-access Chemical Service Center (CSC) uniting the unique and expensive equipment and setups available at chemistry institutes of the Novosibirsk Research Center. Seven subdivisions have been established as a part of the Center: Departments of Radiospectroscopy, Optical Spectroscopy, Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry, X-ray Diffraction Analysis and X-ray Spectroscopy, Microanalysis, Toxicological and Pharmacological Analysis, and Research Equipment Maintenance. The equipment available in the Center enables high-level research in the areas of ecology, biology, chemistry, biochemistry, and medicine that complies with the modern international standards. The Testing Center is a part of the integrated systems multi-access centers of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) and the fundamental laboratories of environmental analytical control in the Novosibirsk Region.

The Toxicological and Pharmacological Department of the SUC performs biological testing of chemical substances, pharmaceutical and biologically active food additives to determine the pharmacological (anti-inflammatory, antiulcer, wound healing, antioxidant, antiarrhythmic, psychotropic, myorelaxant, etc.) activity and toxicity (acute, subchronic, chronic, cumulation and the allergizing effect).Toxic-pharmacological department CSC performs biological testing of chemical compounds, medical preparations and dietary supplements by definition of pharmacological properties (anti-inflammatory, anti-ulser, wound healing, antioxidant, anti-arrhythmic, psychotropic cumulative, local and allergenic action, etc,).

The Center for International Science and Technology Information Network and Spectral Information offers information services for the fundamental and applied research conducted at the institutes of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences and higher educational institutions using the information resources available at the Novosibirsk Institute of Organic Chemistry (STN, REAXYS, SciFinder, INSPEC, SCOPUS, patent databases, and the BSI resources). The Center provides access to the electronic resources hosted by various publishing companies, the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, and the Ministry of Education and Science.
