The Laboratory

In January 2021, Brookes Bell officially opened a new high-end laboratory.  The 8,000sq ft facility has been developed on the Wirral, Nr Liverpool in the UK and includes advanced testing and inspection facilities, a modern analytical laboratory, engineering workshop space, flexible training facilities and offices.  The laboratory enhances the multi-disciplinary technical and scientific services Brookes Bell offer and allow us to provide a wide suite of services to support engineering, industrial and manufacturing sectors in addition to providing our existing clients with an alternative service that has been built cognisant of the requirements of the marine and energy industry for forensic investigations.

The new laboratory houses a state of the art fuel-testing facility, including GCMS (Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry), ICP (Inductively Coupled Plasma) and FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy), as well as advanced investigative laboratory equipment, such as a digital microscope equipment, SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) and portable analysis equipment such as LIBS (Laser Induced Spectroscopy) and PMI (Positive Material Identification).  The laboratory will also be a centre of excellence for advanced Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) applications which will enable us to continue to work with collaborative industrial partners and clients alike to deliver state-of-the-art NDT services and world-first applications.
