Hooton, United Kingdom - Intertek, a global leader in providing quality solutions to industries worldwide, announces the opening of a brand new laboratory located in Hooton, in the north west of England. Previously located in Capenhurst, Intertek Clinical Research Services (CRS) has more than doubled the size of its Laboratory. With this new location Intertek can accommodate and deliver larger projects for its customers, with capacity to develop new and innovative techniques tailored to its customer’s needs. Intertek delivers a wide range of in-vitro oral care test methods including dental abrasivity, whitening, oral sensitivity, enamel erosion, remineralisation, cleaning efficacy and analytical support for Clinical Trials. The Hooton facility also incorporates the main administrative office for Intertek CRS, providing seamless management of the services offered in oral care, dermatology, nutrition and healthcare research.

This growth and investment, within an increasingly stringent environment for regulatory and advertising claims support, demonstrates Intertek’s determination to build on its reputation for quality and delivery of robust scientific data. The team of multi-disciplinary scientists are committed to delivering a superior service, both regionally and internationally and from this new location, the CRS team can continue to excel in both routine and bespoke experiment design, tailored to meet specific objectives or claims.

Dr Peter Hall, Laboratory Director at Intertek CRS said: “This new Laboratory has been custom-built and equipped to give us the perfect environment for not only meeting, but exceeding our customer needs; for now, and into the future. We are truly excited.”
