National pharmaceutical research
One of the reasons that LGC is so unique is our role in cutting edge analytical science and involvement in National research programmes.
LGC has a long history of supporting UK government and regulatory agencies in important work related to crime prevention, national security, consumer protection and public health. We provide a broad range of chemical, bioanalytical and forensic services to departments including DEFRA, BIS, DoH, the Home Office, HMRC and the MoD.
LGC is hosts a number of national roles including the Government Chemist function, the National Measurement Laboratory and Designated Institute for chemical and bio-measurement, and the National Reference Laboratories for a number of areas. In our Government Chemist function we provide scientific advice and analytical services in areas such as food and agriculture, health and pharmaceuticals. Our role as a National Measurement Laboratory defines our credibility at the forefront of science and innovation and allows us to offer unparalleled expertise on matters relating to policy, regulation and global measurement challenges.
We also provide laboratory research facility management services on behalf of the British Pharmacopoeia and the MHRA.
