During lockdown, we have continued to operate laboratories whose work is directly supporting the UK’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, plus a very limited number of non virus-related customer activities that are clearly in the national interest.
From 11 May, we are bringing an additional ten scientific groups back into operation, to provide support to UK industry in getting back to business. All work will be carried out with our scientists’ safety and wellbeing as our top priority. The ten areas where we are re-opening some services are:
- Advanced Materials Characterisation
- Air Quality and Aerosol Metrology
- Electromagnetic Measurements
- Electronic & Magnetic Materials
- Engineering Measurement Services
- Gas & Particle Metrology
- Medical Radiation Science
- Nuclear Metrology
- Temperature & Humidity
- Ultrasound & Underwater Acoustics
If you are a customer of NPL who uses one of the reinstated services, our customer services team will be in touch to discuss your individual projects.
As a national laboratory, NPL has been working with organisations who are supporting the UK’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. As we now move towards recovery, we are offering our world-leading metrology expertise to help UK business meet the challenges associated with returning to operational activity. We want to hear about those challenges, and where UK industry needs help. Please get in touch to talk to one of our experts.
