Main activities:

  • Monitoring of micronutrient status in children of different ages.
  • Assessment of the condition and correction of microelement status in the population of the regions affected by the Chernobyl accident.
  • Control of the content of toxic elements in food and food raw materials.
  • Study of microelement components in soil and water sources of the Grodno region.


Industry laboratory services

  1. Development of the composition and formulation of food additives for the creation of functional foods, biologically active additives .
  2. Preclinical biological testing of dietary supplements, medicines, food supplements, etc. on cell culture and on experimental models on laboratory animals.
  3. Testing of antidiabetic drugs on β-cell culture, etc.
  4. In vitro testing of drugs that reduce the degree of protein glycosylation.
  5. Testing the cytotoxicity of chemotherapy drugs on cell cultures.
  6. Study of the microelement composition of water, soil, biological material (blood, urine, tissues of animals, plants and humans), dietary supplements, pharmaceutical substances; perhaps, the study of the trace element composition of minerals (the method needs to be improved).

  • determination of the concentration of microelements by mass spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma: - water, urine, tissues, food additives, foodstuffs, dietary supplements, etc., animals and humans;
  • determination of indicators of the antioxidant system by the spectrophotometric method: - SOD, catalase, GPO, GR, GT; determination of the total antioxidant activity of serum and tissues;
  • determination of the concentration of low molecular weight antioxidants (glutathione), as well as the concentration of non-protein, protein thiols and their total in serum and tissues;
  • determination of the concentration of LPO indicators: - concentration of TBRS, as well as DPA-reactive products;
