R&D Services at LNNano
LNNano is focused on the execution of high complexity services which involve innovation, either by developing analytical methodology or by overcoming scientific challenges in its execution.
LNNano offers high excellency on the service process and on the reports issued. Terms of execution and service values are very competitive compared to similar R&D services from Brazilian and abroad laboratories.
As a differential, some of LNNano facilities are being accredited by ABNT NBR ISO/IEC 17025: 2017 under the guidance of RPPNano. This accreditation is scheduled for 2019 and will allow LNNano to issue Quality Certificates for specific electronic microscopy techniques.

Who can hire LNNano services ?
Start-ups, nascent and consolidated companies of any size and business nature can contract LNNano’s support for the execution of services from the advanced characterization of nanotechnological products and advanced materials to synthesis of micro and nanomaterials.
The execution of services is also open to academic users who have a project supported by a government agency and want to use funds from the project to hire third-party services in R&D.
How to request a service ?
Services must be requested exclusively by electronic means, by filling a form located at Services Request.
In this self-explanatory form, you will be asked to indicate what is the analytical technique of your interest and to provide business and technical information about you and your samples.
Filling of the form is mandatory, and no service will be quoted without the completed form.
