We’re in this together
You may have seen our focussed industry pages on the website. Whilst they contain a wealth of information that may be useful, we recognize that as university academics, you are in the unique business of knowledge. This often means that your routes to analytical instruments and services can be varied. Your funding may come from one of many different sources. You may wish to buy instruments or services, find training for your researchers and students or enter into research partnerships.
The fact that you are pushing the boundaries of knowledge also means that you often have special demands of the equipment and methods that you use for analyzing materials and that you may welcome more in-depth discussion with our scientists, in order to get world-leading results from your equipment.

Grants and procurement support
Government-funded purchases are often preceded by winning support grants and procurement of equipment often proceeds via a tender process. We understand what a demanding process procurement can be, and we want to help at every step of your journey. These webpages are here to help you to find the initial information you need. Most often, this is only the beginning of your journey for information gathering. Our account managers and application scientists are accustomed to the kinds of preliminary enquiries that you may need to make and the long timescale that procurement can take (possibly even years after a first-steps enquiry). We want to share that journey with you and help where we can.
