Integrin Invests In Cutting Edge
Integrin has just invested over £130K expanding its analytical capabilities supporting its seafood safety
programmes. This expenditure was underpinned by a grant from Argyll and the Isles Enterprise for £35K.
A new fluorescent HPLC system allows Integrin to use the new internationally validated method for PSP
toxins in addition a new LC-MS/MS system will be used to support the testing of DSP toxins. The new
machine will provide a fast and reliable system for analysing the various DSP toxins giving improved quality
of information to customers about their product.
Proudly overseeing these new machines is Dr Michael Williams. Michael brings over 6 years post doctoral
experience using LC-MS/MS in a contract research and pharmaceutical research environment.
It is anticipated that this boost to Integrins analytical capacity and capability will provide its clients with a wider
range of chemical testing whilst offering larger capacity for tests already supported.
For further information please contact Dr Williams on firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on
01631 720 765.
