DIN Standards Committee Laboratory Devices and Installations
The DIN Standards Committee Laboratory Devices and Installations (FNLa) develops standards for chemical, physical, biological and medical laboratories.
- These standards cover subjects such as:
- accuracy of instruments,
- compatibility of laboratory devices and furniture,
- national (German) and international terminology,
- function, safety and testing of lab equipment.
Through involvement in current research projects we are able to introduce innovative technologies in our standards. The FNLa holds the secretariats for CEN/TC 332 "Laboratory equipment" and ISO/TC 48 "Laboratory equipment", thus representing German interests at European and international level as well.
