A personal touch

The founding partners, Garry F. Carter and Peter J. Lapworth, were both Health Service trained in Clinical Chemistry.

Later they specialised in toxicology and further into occupational health monitoring.

All aspects of the services Trace Laboratories offer, from the collection of samples to methods of reporting, can be discussed and tailored to the individual clients requirements.
