We can arrange hands-on, no obligation demonstrations from knowledgeable and experienced technicians, you'll see the equipment in use and learn useful hints and tips to get the best from your samples. We can accommodate users individually or small groups if you have colleagues who are interested. If you have a sample you'd like to use please call to discuss as we will endeavour to use this - although at your own risk!

We will try to work with your availability, if you have a preferred date please do let us know - free tea, coffee and WiFi too!

Agar Scientific is very conveniently situated, we are only 5 minutes drive from the M11 - junction 8, 10 minutes from Stansted airport, with the London Cambridge mainline nearby as well.
