We’re moving!

NCIMB is moving to new purpose-built premises during December 2022. Our new premises is a fantastic purpose-built facility, and the move allows us to increase our sequencing capacity through the addition of new equipment. This means from January we will be able to increase the number of same and next-day turnaround samples that we can process for our identification service customers. The last date that we can accept samples before Christmas this year, is Friday 16 December. This is a little earlier than normal because we are packing up to …

ICorr Corrosion Forum

Our consultant microbiologist Dr Carol Devine attended the ICorr Aberdeen Branch corrosion forum at the end of August. The theme of the event was energy transition and corrosion, and material challenges associated with the energy transition. Topics covered included corrosion issues arising during hydrogen transport, and with offshore wind, fusion reactors and solar energy. As we transition our energy supply away from oil and gas it is essential that corrosion challenges – including microbiologically influenced corrosion – are fully considered so that monitoring is effective and preventative action can be taken. We …
