We have a proud track record of reducing our customers’ risk, while increasing their commercial opportunities and profitability.

As one of the world’s largest, multi-disciplinary science organisations, our equipment includes world class facilities found no-where else in Australia. This enables you to ‘try before you buy’ so you can find the best way to make your product before investing in your own equipment.
