Laboratory

Richmond Pharmacology’s laboratory is located in-house at our London Bridge site. It is operated by fully trained laboratory staff 24 hours a day and used for immediate sample processing needs.

The laboratories include refrigerated centrifuges for sample processing, refrigerators and -20°C and -80°C freezers for sample storage. The refrigerators and freezers are linked to an alarm system and the temperature is monitored continuously. Our laboratories also have a state-of-the-art, fully automated Drugs of Abuse (DOA) analyser, providing fast and accurate DOA results.

The Doctors Laboratory (TDL) is the central laboratory contracted by Richmond Pharmacology for the majority of studies Richmond Pharmacology are involved in. TDL is a fully CPA accredited laboratory that carries out regulatory compliant services on behalf of Richmond Pharmacology, including biochemistry, haematology, virology and microbiology. We offer a rapid turn around of routine, urgent and emergency results.

We have strong working relationships with numerous external laboratories, and through collaboration with these, Richmond Pharmacology can provide a comprehensive range of laboratory services. These services range from basic laboratory safety analyses to more extensive and complex testing requiring specialist techniques and equipment.
