We’ve got some exciting news to share. 

Our AMS laboratory is growing to meet rising demand.  

We are fully committed to supporting you during and after this transition. As we make progress on this exciting journey, we will expand the information below to support a smooth transition.

30% larger laboratory Over 440 square metres dedicated space  Completion in May 2023

The Analytical and Materials Science (AMS) team has experienced significant growth since its inception 11 years ago and have outgrown their current lab space.

To meet this rising demand, we have started work on reimagining an empty area of our site into a new state-of-the-art AMS laboratory. This lab will be over 30% larger, providing over 440 square metres of dedicated space for analytical and materials science work.  

Completion of the expanded laboratory is expected by early May 2023 - the current lab remains operational through till end April.  

The new laboratory space has been designed to support better collaboration and improved workflow and alongside our Sandwich site and Elemental impurities function, this investment in the analytical and materials science area of our business means we are set up and ready to support our customers demand now and in the future. 

We are delighted to be expanding our lab at Fordham and to start this new chapter of our story.” said AMS Operations Director Ellen Stokvis. “Our new state-of-the-art purpose-built lab will support better ways of working, allow us to increase our service offering and be ready to support our customers demand now and in the future.”

The Bioanalytical Solutions labs are unaffected by this renovation project and remain operational as normal.
