Description from 02.04.2023
The Center for Research and Analysis (CBiA) is an independent unit operating within the structure of the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce (UJK). The center was created by the decision of the Rector and was established as a result of the transformation of the Laboratory of X-ray Methods. Currently, the CBiA consists of 3 laboratories: the Laboratory of X-ray Methods (PMR), the Laboratory of Environmental Studies (PBŚ) and Laboratory of Thermal and Chromatographic Analysis (PATCh). PMR was separated from the X-ray Spectrometry Laboratory of the Institute of Physics of the Jan Kochanowski University, PBŚ from the Environmental Research Laboratory (LBŚ), previously operating in the Department of Environmental Protection, while PATCh was separated from the Environmental Research Laboratory and the Group of Geomorphological-Hydrological Laboratories. The laboratories were established under the project "Development of the research base of specialized laboratories of public universities in the Świętokrzyskie region" (Operational Program Innovative Economy, Priority 2. R&D infrastructure, Measure 2.2. Support for development of research infrastructure of scientific entities).
The center is a research and service unit whose purpose is:
- conducting scientific research,
- the realization of of works commissioned by other entities, including business entities.
The organization of the Center is defined by the requirements of the Integrated Quality Management System, the principles of which are regulated by the PN-EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018-2 standard "General requirements for the competence of testing and calibration laboratories".
Currently, the Center consists of two laboratories:
- Laboratory of X-ray Methods (PMR)
- Laboratory of Environmental Studies (PBŚ)
- Laboratory of Thermal and Chromatographic Analysis (PATCh)
Staff of the CBiA consists of employees of the Faculty of Natural Sciences and PhD students of the Doctoral School of the Jan Kochanowski University in Kielce, delegated by the Rector to work at the Center:
