Medical Research Centre, London

In conjunction with Zetica and Aurora Health Physics Services, BRD was involved with a site investigation on an active Medical Research Centre in London.  The site is used predominantly for experimental work for the development of vaccines, and to gain and understanding as to how different pathogens behave under certain conditions.  Due to the processes involved, a range of contaminants were anticipated to be present across the site and this is why a team of specialists in different disaplines was assembled to complete the investigation.

Although there are targeted areas of investigation that remain, the majority of the site was found to be uncontaminated.
