Contract Research, Claim Verification and Certification

As a leading biomedical contract research organisation specialising in aerobiology, we help world leading companies to develop, innovate, audit and differentiate their products and services through the delivery of market relevant, health based data.

Our mission is to prevent ill health caused by exposure to indoor air pollutants. To achieve this goal we have assembled a unique multidisciplinary team of clinicians and scientists specialising in microbiology, allergy and immunology. Operating from state of the art testing facilities, we focus on the relationship between airborne and surface biological pollutants (viruses, bacteria, mold, allergens) and the spread of ill health in the indoor environment.
