»This time the excursion program included visiting Company's new production facilities, for example, a site for sampling and sub-sampling. Here, in seconds, the authenticity of the raw material is determined without opening the package with the help of a special device - brooker. By the way, you can test its precision in an absolutely clear way as the device determines the authenticity of precious stones. This year we will present a new microbiological laboratory. This is a unique building of 350 square meters for veterinary pharmaceutical use, which has no analogues in the industry and, of course, it is our special pride,» tells Maxim Helmut, the head of the NITA-FARM PR department.
