Malvern extends contract services in France

Malvern Instruments has extended its provision of contract testing services for particle characterization in France following the conclusion of an agreement with the Laboratoire de Génie Chimique (LGC) based in Toulouse. The agreement covers services related to both wet and dry particle size analysis. Testing will be carried out by LGC scientists and technicians skilled in the application of advanced particle sizing techniques. Enquiries about contract services and the initiation of projects will continue to be handled in the first instance by Malvern's application specialists.

LGC is an academic research department linked to the French national research organisation CNRS and to two local Universities (Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse and Université Paul Sabatier). More than 230 researchers and students conduct projects covering most aspects of modern chemical engineering, including particle and interfacial engineering.
