Our consultancy and analytical laboratory is used by clients from a broad range of industries including forensic investigators, insurers, legal, as well as marine and aviation industries. Typically, a case will be concerned with accidental damage and so the consequences of that action will often leave behind a chemical story to be discovered in the form of trace amounts of contaminants or accelerants etc. Other cases involve the accidental contamination of one chemical feedstock with another and then determining whether a component can then be separated economically.

However, the following are particularly relevant for our experience and knowledge:


Investigative chemistry for pollution and spillage samples as well as issues with cargo tank coatings, cross contamination of cargoes.
Demurrage costs can be mitigated by agreeing a shorter timescale on sample analyses.

Forensic Investigators

– these companies regularly use us for their analysis requirements.


– insurance companies and loss adjusters. Much of our work comes from insurance investigators for whom we have established a priority service level over the last 5 years. We are listed on the Insurance Directories website.

As a growing company we would, however, welcome enquiries from other industries.

Please note that we provide a business to business service and do not normally take on single jobs from private individuals except in cases where we receive written instructions by their legal representative or insurance company. Please do not ask us to reverse engineer any commercial products.

To see what sort of analysis we can provide please take a look at our Solutions pages.
