Student services and University support

Trying to complete your PhD and don’t have enough equipment access? 

Need some guidance and the supervisors are backed up?

We may be able to help. We won’t write the papers for you, but we can offer consultancy services, and laboratory services that may be able to help you work at that pace you want to work at. If you find the university equipment is constantly booked out and you just want to get the job done!

In some cases, we may even let you use our equipment (with agreement of your university and under our supervision), so that you can get some first-hand experience. 

We have many chemists from different backgrounds that have been where you are and understand the challenges!

We get many students asking us to carry out various analysis for them, where they prepare the samples, and we do the analysis as they don’t have access to the kit where they are. 

So, we decided to go with it, as we always like to help develop new chemistry graduates into the world! 

Who knows, maybe even if we build up a good relationship there might be a job here at the end of it!

Please check out our techniques page and see if we have equipment that might help you out.

Our charges are customised to your needs but can start from as little as £250 a day, or £80 a sample with reducing costs based on volume. This is a vastly reduced charge to help the student community.

If you can prepare samples and provide standards it keeps the costs down a great deal!

Our Services

New regulations around Biocides came into place in 2012 and we have since worked with industry to support registration needs conducting 5 batch analysis, routine testing, storage stability, physical testing and more on a wide range of Biocides. Find out more here

Biostimulants are a wonderful new way to protect our plants and wildlife by using nature to protect itself. They are natural substances harnessed for their characteristics and developed into products that can be applied to seeds, plants and soils in order to stimulate natural growth. 

We can help with your testing requirements. Find out more here

Need a reasoned case for a regulator? Trying to develop a product or a method? See what our chemists and consultants can do to help. Find out more here

We can cover elemental to extremely low levels. If you just need to identify, quantify, or fully validate a method. Our ICP systems cover a wide range of elements often working on 10+ elements simultaneously. 

We regularly work on Silver, Lead, Arsenic, Chromium, Cadmium, Mercury, Copper, Boron and Sodium to name a few. Our list of capabilities stretches much longer! Find out more here

During the formulation of your product there may be formluation stress tests needed to determine your product will meet regulatory requirements once it undergoes formal GLP analysis. 

Not all labs that formulate have the equipment needed to support the full scope of testing and it may mean failure of the product down the line costing significant amounts.

We can support you develop your formulations and carry out various forms of preliminary physical, chemical and analytical testing to confirm if it meets specifications – or to determine its specifications. Find out more here

The fertiliser market is well established but under scrutiny with the introduction of new regulations demanding more rigorous testing and reducing acceptable levels of elements. 

We are one of few labs that can offer the full suite of Fertiliser testing including Inorganic Arsenic, and Chromium VI. Find out more here

We have been developing bespoke methods at affordable prices for many years. Our chemists have developed thousands of methods over the years from simple single actives to complex products covering a wide range of levels and product types. 

We can also validate already developed methods or support you through your own method development journey via consultation.

Our validation expertise covers global requirements including SANCO/3030/99, SANTE/2020/12830 and ICH Q2, OPPTS 830.1800 and APVMA among others. Find out more here

Need data for registration or a safety data sheet?

From explosive properties through to partition co-efficient, we cover a wider range of physical tests and can also develop our own in-house methods for novel experiments.

We use a range of methods from CIPAC, ASTM, ISO, OPPTS, OECD and more to meet global regulatory requirements. Find out more here

We have worked with consultants and direct customers for many years supporting their Agrochemical registration testing requirements under global regulations. Find out more here

Do you outsource your formulation requirements? We can help you. 

It can be difficult for small companies to find cost effective providers for their formulation needs, and many companies simply will only follow your instruction whether it is chemically correct or not. We will not just formulate for you, we will offer chemistry advice and consultancy as part of our standard service to support you on your journey.

We can prepare your formulation as per your instructions directly, or under the guidance of our chemists. We can also carry out stress testing and preliminary micro preparations to reduce you costs and trial several options at once to find the perfect solution. Find out more here

Need routine quality checks, one offs or concerned about contamination?

New regulations to meet? We often take on complex novel projects and it is what we are known for! Our chemists enjoy doing something different! Find out more here

We can design storage stability studies with or without GLP accreditation under the Biocides, Plant Protection, or ICH guidelines to support registration around the world. Find out more here

We help students from all over analyse their prepared samples to help them along their journey when they don’t have available instruments.

Find out more here about how we might be able to help.

We can carry out impurity profiling, product screening, method validation and 5 batch analysis or Technical Equivalence studies to meet your registration needs. We develop bespoke methods for your products and can also support with structural identification requirements.

We have many years of experience with successful studies over many compounds from Citric Acid to Pyrethrins covering elemental impurities, isomers, and additives of all types. 

Whether your product is a TC, or TK we can help. Find out more here
