Equipment

We are distinguished by the very wide range of equipment operated on site, which can meet the vast majority of analytical challenges faced by our core clients.

Equipment is maintained and qualified to comply with cGMP standards.
We also have a rolling equipment development programme continually adding to the services we offer and our strong capabilities, and will invest in equipment on behalf of customers where required.
