We have a simple aspiration

To provide the highest standard of chemical hazard and risk assessments across the broadest range of industries and organisations.

We aim to help our clients cope with the complex and ever-changing regulations framed to protect human health, and we endeavour to do this in a way that meets their time and budgetary constraints.

Our expertise

Hazard Characterisation

Our hazard assessments, generally based on in-depth searches of the scientific literature, aim to define the dose-response for all routes of each of a chemical’s toxicological propensities.

Risk Assessment

Our health risk assessments convert the toxicological hazard profile to a health-based guidance value, and compare this reference point to an estimate of human exposure.

Literature Searching

Robust risk assessments rely upon quality data. We are experienced searchers of major toxicity databases, giving us valuable access to Expert Group and primary reports.

Industries we work in

Extractables + Leachables

We provide valuable support to the pharmaceutical, medical device and processing equipment industries by producing screening reports and, if warranted, full risk assessment reports relating to extractables and leachables (E&L).
