Nika-Tera seaport laboratory will allow to analyse agricultural cargoes in 1 minute
Nika-Tera seaport, a member of Group DF, upgraded the laboratory to increase the speed of analysis of agricultural consignments: vegetable oils, sunflower meal and cereals.

Bruker is a public company listed on NASDAQ. The company specializes in the production of diagnostic solutions and equipment that allow to study materials at the molecular, cellular and microscopic levels.
