A large part of the workload here at Multi-lab is producing products and components for the scientific community. Due to the unique properties of fused quartz, there is an ongoing demand for a wide variety of scientific components, parts that are essential when carrying out research and experiments in the Laboratory.

Multi-lab produce a wide range of test tubes, condensers, flasks, reaction vessels etc but most orders are for bespoke apparatus, often assisting the customers to design a product that most suits their needs and requirements.

Multi-lab are also able to offer a comprehensive repair service for those delicate parts that sometimes get broken or simply worn. A service that can save our customers considerable time and expense. Before you decide to discard an item of test equipment, get in touch with us here at Multi-lab. We’ve repaired many fragile components over the years and we pack the parts to ensure there is no damage during transit.
