博客 - Analysis for Innovators is back! The latest round of the A4I programme from Innovate UK and its partners (LGC, NPL, NEL, & STFC) has now opened, with up to £3M available in total for Round 3.
博客 - LGC, in our role as the UK National Measurement Laboratory, partnered with Innovate UK to launch a new funding programme 'Analysis for Innovators' (A4I) last year.
博客 - We have partnered with Dr Rachel Carling and the NHS England as part of the CSO’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP), a programme that teams up leaders in healthcare with the UK National Measurement System’s labs to solve measurement challenges in their fields.
博客 - In pregnant women and infants iodine is of particular importance as it plays a critical role in brain development. The primary sources of iodine for most people are milk and dairy products but due to increases in dairy intolerance and changes in diet, milk-products are being increasingly substituted for non-milk alternatives.

博客 - This Sunday, 20th May, is World Metrology Day, the birthday of the signing of the Metre Convention of 20 May 1875 (and pretty much the best day of the year for measurement scientists like us).
博客 - The UK was one of the pioneers within the global measurement community to recognise the need to address the new and developing challenges of measurement across chemistry and biology.
博客 - Honey is known to have multiple health and nutritional benefits and is in high demand among consumers. However, due to the declining numbers of bees, the impact of weather conditions on supply and the high costs production, honey is expensive, which makes it a prime target for economically-motivated food fraud.

The fear of accidental exposure in food reduces the quality of life of peanut allergy sufferers and severely limits the social habits of allergic individuals, their families and even their friends.
博客 - What do we really know about the potential effects when nanomaterials and nanotechnology come into contact with complex matrices and how do we ensure that nanoproducts are safe?
