Cherwell Laboratories is celebrating its 45th anniversary this November. The specialist suppliers of products for environmental monitoring, cleanroom biodecontamination and process validation for healthcare, pharmaceutical and industrial applications was initially set up as a veterinary diagnostic laboratory in 1971 by Lawrence Whittard.
Since then, maintaining strong customer and industry links has played a fundamental role in the achievements of the company and, therefore, Cherwell will be marking its anniversary at Pharmig’s 24th annual conference on Stand 9.
During their 45 years in business, Cherwell has built a reputation for providing high-quality products, expert advice and excellent customer service to meet the specific requirements of environmental monitoring and process validation. Cherwell attribute their success in these areas to the strength of relationships that they have built with customers and on their ability to work closely with them to provide the best solution for their individual needs.
Andy Whittard, Cherwell’s Managing Director, commented: “We pride ourselves on our willingness and ability to work with customers. Our industry knowledge, expertise and readiness to discuss requirements allow us to fully understand the individual challenges faced by our customers and to hopefully fulfil their needs. Our employees are a vital part of our business: they are the ones who go the extra mile because they care about our customers.”
He continued: “Attending and supporting key industry events has played an important part in building these relationships and keeping in touch with regulatory changes and customer requirements. Therefore, we thought it fitting that we celebrated our 45th anniversary at Pharmig’s annual conference. We will be running a competition on our stand for delegates to enter for the chance to win a hamper.”
Pharmig’s annual conference will be held on the 16-17 November at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel and will provide the opportunity for individuals to keep up-to-date with the latest hot topics in microbiology. This year, the topics covered will include Annex 1 updates, environmental monitoring risk assessment and the lean approach and the use of HACCP for reducing microbiological contamination.
Experts from Cherwell Laboratories will be at the conference to demonstrate Cherwell’s product range and to share and develop their own expertise. Notably, Cherwell’s Microbiology Product Specialist, Andrew Ramage, will be contributing on the Culture Media: Back to Basics discussion sessions led by Dr Tim Sandle, BPL on Wednesday 16 November at 12.15 pm and Thursday 17th November at 11 am.
Cherwell’s range includes Redipor prepared media — such as Petri dishes, settle plates, bottled media, broth bags, vials and ampoules; SAS microbial air samplers for environmental monitoring — and Mar Cor bio-decontamination solutions. Also ensuring that Cherwell is able to respond efficiently to changing industry and customer requirements, the company has implemented a flexible manufacturing process for its Redipor range.
