About Us

Our laboratory is certified under the Department of Health’s GLP scheme, and has been since its foundation in 1989. Our quality assurance department undertakes an internal programme of self inspection to ensure that our exacting standards are met.

Oxford Analytical Limited is an independent company founded in 1989, with the original focus of providing specialist GLP compliant pesticide residue analysis. Since then our services have expanded considerably and we have built upon our original areas of expertise in agrochemicals, technical material, formulated product testing, five batch analysis and storage stability testing. To now include veterinary medicine and pharmaceutical analysis.
