New operational procedures and prices for Characterisation Facility

We are introducing a new booking system and a new pricelist on 1 April 2013. Note that all bookings are now required to be done online via this website – please contact Margaret Ward if you need additional information on

We have also revised our pricelist – costs have generally increased slightly, although in some instances we have shifted from pricing by sample to by hour which will not always constitute a price increase.

We look forward to continuing to work with you all and hope these procedures will make your bookings easier.
