Why Scymaris

Our foundation is a heritage of over 75 years' experience in serving pharmaceutical,  agrochemical and chemical industries. With modern and sophisticated world class facility and state-of-the-art laboratories, and unique access to marine species in Brixham to provide a turnkey solution for GLP and non-GLP Environmental Risk Assessment requirements.

As a dedicated environmental testing laboratory, we bring together expertise across all disciplines to ensure that our testing strategies are adapted to the challenges of today’s new chemistries. This includes poorly soluble, UVCB, volatile or unstable, natural products, and difficult to analyse substances.

Our goal is to help our clients understand the lifecycle of chemicals in our environment and the impact this has on the ecosystem.
