Scientific Instrumentation

Within the life science category we design, develop, prototype, test and supply complex products to meet rapidly changing global needs.

We don’t just ‘deliver’ during a project, we have significant knowledge and experience to work successfully alongside each function acting as the ‘bridge’ to create real value.

Our experience ranges across a wide variety of products and systems including laboratory automation, analytical instruments, drug discovery and personal healthcare.

Our skills cover all aspects of product development including conceptual design, mechanical systems, control technology, software systems, design for manufacture.
