FACILITIESA One Of A Kind Facility Based Within M-SParc

We possess both chemical synthesis and biological containment laboratories, giving us unique capabilities

This combination of both chemical and biological facilities allows us to rapidly assess the biological significance of chemical compounds.

CHEMICALOrganic Synthesis Lab

Chemical synthesis laboratory with a full complement of equipment

The synthesis lab enables us to create and manipulate compounds from mycobacteria, with an emphasis on mycolic acids and their sugar esters.

On a small to medium scale we are able to produce highly defined mycolic acids with high stereochemical purity.

BIOLOGICALClass 2 Containment Lab

A unique facility on Anglesey used for developing diagnostic methods for mycobacteria

Our class 2 containment lab allows us to research and develop mycobacterial diagnostic methods.

This primarily takes the route of immunoassays including the following methods:

  • Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA)
  • Flow Through Assays
