Lancaster Laboratories, one of the United States’ largest commercial analytical laboratories, has acquired Microchem Laboratories, a premier leader among Ireland’s testing and research labs. Global clients will now have laboratory resources available on both sides of the Atlantic to test raw materials and drug products to be marketed worldwide. Microchem’s testing services complement the services of Lancaster Laboratories to provide a comprehensive offering to our pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and medical device clients worldwide.

Microchem offers microbiological, chemical and environmental analyses to the pharmaceutical, medical device, food and chemical industries throughout Europe and Asia. Microchem has extensive capabilities in both microbiology and chemistry, and offers services, including raw materials testing, finished product analysis, stability, batch release testing in the European Union, method development/validation, and facility validation support. Established in 1986, Microchem quickly differentiated itself by becoming the first commercial testing lab in Ireland to receive accreditation by the Irish National Accreditation Board to the International Standard 17025.

Microchem and Lancaster Laboratories have become recognized leaders in contract analytical services as a result of dedication to technical expertise, superlative service, broad range of capabilities and rigorous regulatory compliance.
