Our measurement services

Accurate measurements underpin quality of life and consumer confidence. These measurements can often be challenging due to the complexity of the sample matrix, the ultra-low levels required, or the lack of analytical methods available in the literature.

In addition to our wide range of accredited methods (see schedule of accreditation), we specialise in the development and validation of challenging measurement methods (organics, inorganics, DNA and RNA). Our expert team will work with you to understand your requirements and, using our unique capabilities, design innovative measurement solutions in accordance with your timeline and quality requirements.
