Element has launched a Lab Solutions division within its Life Sciences business unit. The new division provides laboratories with cutting-edge equipment, critical support and the deep insights needed to consistently ensure the highest quality analytical data.

The new Lab Solutions division brings together capabilities across the UK & Ireland through Element’s previous acquisitions of Apex Scientific (Maynooth, Ireland), Anatune (Cambridge, England) and Crawford Scientific (Strathaven, Scotland). Besides complete high-end systems for chromatography and mass spectrometry, laboratories and analytical specialists working in this field now have access to a single supplier for chromatography columns, consumables, instrumentation, automation, training, servicing and consultancy. These products and services are widely used in the pharamecutical, healthcare, chemical manufacturing, food and beverage, and environmental monitoring industries. They are available to purchase here.

The Strathaven and Maynooth sites combine their broad columns and consumables businesses to cater to the UK & Ireland. The Cambridge site completes the equation with its industry-leading automation and instrumentation solutions. Together, this team will allow customers to source everything they need to perform analysis across the entire workflow of sample preparation and analysis through just one service provider. In due course, Element will extend Lab Solutions’ offerings throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Andy Pepper, Divisional Director of Element Lab Solutions, stated “There is nothing more frustrating when fitting and equipping laboratories than having to trawl through many suppliers to find what you need. Now we can offer customers a single trusted provider of everything needed to undertake analyses. Our technical expertise, equipment and support across our sites in UK and Ireland can help laboratories to concentrate on their core business and maximize their efficiency and performance.”

Element Lab Solutions is a leading supplier of instrumentation, automation and training for chromatography and mass spectrometry. The equipment, services and expertise will help customers to maximise their lab performance in separating, identifying and quantifying analytes to support product and process development, quality control, regulatory compliance and environmental monitoring

Element’s global Life Sciences division includes more than 1,400 scientists, chemists, and technologists working across a network of sites and laboratories to deliver complete and comprehensive scientific solutions that support customers’ end-to-end product development lifecycle from early R&D through complex regulatory approvals, into production and beyond. The division supports the global role that laboratory testing demands to make the world’s tomorrow safer than today.
