This September, Teesside University opens a brand new, purpose built super-lab, 'National Horizons,' to their students.
Serious research will be carried out daily here as the country’s promising young scientists work towards their qualifications and degrees. This is a huge step forward for scientific education and will hopefully act as incentive for more young people to consider a career in science.
Spectronic CamSpec have supplied and serviced spectrophotometers to Teesside University for years, building strong relationships with the Laboratory Managers and Technical Assistants. Recognising the value and quality of our services, Teesside asked us to supply their new analytical super lab with a number of CamSpec UV-Vis M501 and M550 spectrophotometers. One of our service engineers spent a whole day at National Horizons for the installation, setting up the instruments and ensuring everything was running smoothly. On the same day, another of our expert engineers installed a Mercury Analyser at the University of Exeter in Penryn – we couldn't get any further apart if we tried!
We soon returned to Teesside to deliver a training session on the CamSpec spectrophotometers and their PC software. Professors and academics from many different walks of life attended and were impressed by the instruments and their capabilities. We covered everything from taking readings to general maintenance; our training sessions are given by highly knowledgeable, qualified engineers who work with the instruments every day and aim to ensure our end-users have the best possible experience.
The National Horizons super lab is going to be amazing and provide hundreds of budding scientists with fantastic facilities to complete their all-important education. Spectronic CamSpec is thrilled to have been a part of this step forward in science in the UK and wishes all students in September the best of luck in their qualifications.
