Leatherhead opens new chemistry research laboratory

September 24, 2013

Leatherhead Food Research has opened a new chemistry research laboratory, which has successfully retained its UKAS-accreditation for a range of food testing, including Group 1 and Group 2 nutrition, and a range of ELISA-based assays for allergens and meat speciation.

The increased space has allowed Leatherhead to bring all of the chemistry facilities into one laboratory, with a dedicated section for allergens’ testing. The large purpose-built facility has been designed for efficient flow-through of samples from receipt and preparation through to extraction and analysis. This ergonomic advantage will allow the range of analytical services at Leatherhead to continue to grow in capacity and scope, as well as expand our research capabilities.
