Reach turns 4!
The last four years have seen a fair few changes for Reach. We've expanded rapidly, in terms of space, head count, equipment and capabilities. We now have two laboratories here at Biocity and six laboratory staff, we've come a long way since Alex set up the first lab, which we now affectionately refer to as ‘the cupboard'!
We've installed four new pieces of instrumentation already this year. This sees us increasing our achiral capacity with; another large scale achiral preparative kit, an achiral reverse phase screen and a second column oven containing achiral columns on the UPC2. Our reverse phase screen now allows us to automate a peptide screen, aiding our expansion into the analysis of small peptides.
To celebrate our birthday we've had Google pay us a visit! You can take a look around the whole of Reach HQ here
As you can see our two large laboratories are looking rather full! Our large range of kit allows us to start every job straightaway, making sure samples are back in the hands of the chemist as soon as possible!
