CRO offering Customised Research Microbiology

Perfectus Biomed is a CRO offering customised research microbiology. We offer an academically based approach to microbiology combined with the professionalism, speed and accreditation of industry. We are ISO 9001 certified and we offer UKAS accredited ISO 17025 test methods.

We work closely with our clients to understand their requirements and we understand the difference between generating data for regulatory, marketing and internal purposes. Clients require customised test methods when; standard methods are not quite appropriate for their novel product, when there is no available test method or when independent validation of internal test methods is required.

Examples of this:

  • A novel test product may be in an inappropriate state for the test method e.g. a solid state antimicrobial could not be tested as part of an assay designed for testing liquid antimicrobials.
  • An assay designed for testing wound dressings may not account for the variation in dressing layers/structures and absorbencies.
  • The unique selling feature of a product may not be demonstrated using standard test methodologies.
  • Perfectus Biomed have scientists who understand that there is a commercial requirement for microbiology to go beyond the laboratory bench and to more accurately replicate real life scenarios.

How Perfectus Biomed can help;

  • Our services include extensive consultation with clients in order to ensure that we understand the microbiological question you are seeking to answer and the intended data use.
  • We tailor our method design so that it is appropriate for the testing of your product.
  • All assays include appropriate positive and negative controls and suitable repeats in order to ensure validity of the data.
  • We employ PhD microbiologists to run your projects to ensure a detailed understanding of your research.
