We found Perfectus Biomed to be very professional and efficient in carrying out testing of our decontamination facility, and writing a report and abstract. We would have no hesitation in working with them again in the future
The service Perfectus Biomed offer is quick, flexible and professional. I am happy to recommend them to other people.
I found Perfectus Biomed to be professional, knowledgeable and comprehensive in their approach.
Perfectus Biomed are without doubt highly knowledgeable and helpful. This helps clarify the best way to achieve the goal prior to the project being commissioned.
Perfectus Biomed have proven to be cost effective on all of our projects, but most importantly they deliver what they promise.
Excellent service from a very professional company.
The Perfectus team were responsive, knowledgeable and professional; the study was performed to high quality standards and to promised timelines. Service was excellent.
The work was carried out to a high standard and the project and report were delivered on time. The recommendations it contained were very helpful. Got very friendly and professional support from the team both when setting up the testing and afterwards when discussing the results and next steps.
Working with Louise was very easy and professional. I appreciated her emailing me mid project to say that things were looking good and that the analysis would be completed and delivered on time.

Working with Perfectus Biomed has been an absolute pleasure. They truly believe in the adage that customer service is king, and have repeatedly gone the extra mile to ensure that the true purpose behind our testing requirements has been met. Even factoring in the exchange rate, and the extreme distance between us in South Africa and their UK facility, we will still use them time & again going forward!

We can use the PMM to test for bacterial adhesion to and host cell toxicity of experimental devices.

Since much of the human genital tract is composed of mucosal tissue, the PMM can be used for predictive preclinical testing of compounds or products related to urogenital health.

Inflammation and Biocompatibility
The PMM offers a unique way to investigate inflammatory cytokine concentrations in a cost-effective manner. We can perform ELISAs and multiplex assays to determine whether experimental compounds are pro- or anti-inflammatory.

Mucosal tissue is an ideal environment for microbial growth, making the PMM an excellent application for testing the efficacy of products to treat infectious disease pathogens. We can test for efficacy against planktonic and biofilm infections with this model.
