Acquisition enables Eurofins to offer Centre of Excellence In Microbiology in Scotland

Eurofins Food & Water Testing UK has announced the acquisition of a micro testing business in Scotland. 

Eurofins has purchased Linlithgow-based Express Micro Science, one of Scotland’s leading analytical testing businesses with expertise across water, chemistry, agriculture, and food microbiology. 

The move follows a string of acquisitions last year as it expands its reach across more areas of the UK, including Wales and Northern Ireland. 

Managing director Mark Carnaghan explained: “We are delighted to welcome Express Micro Science, and the entire team, into the Eurofins business. The acquisition will provide even greater value to customers of Express, who can benefit from the same level of expertise and service they’ve been used to whilst being supported by a network of trusted world-class laboratories, inter-company services, and our pioneering customer platform, Europortal. 

“This acquisition will enable us to offer a Centre of Excellence in Microbiology in Scotland, supporting customers in and around the country, as well as provide an enhanced range of testing by drawing on Eurofins’ global scope and capabilities.”
