EPP’s expert analytical chemistry team boosted by two new appointments

EPP have a reputation for providing excellent and comprehensive analytical research services providing guidance and relevant advice to clients across all aspects of the registration process. Our
one-stop shop service across the 5-Batch analysis spectrum is particularly well renowned and we have an expansive portfolio of clients who use this expert service.A group photograph of EPP chemists

To boost this service we have made two appointments, Sarah Farr and Samantha Moreton, adding expertise in medicinal and biological chemistry and bioanalytical chemistry to our strong experienced team.

Bruce Craig, Analytical Services Manager at EPP, states,

      We support the agrochemical, veterinary, pharmaceutical and industrial chemical sectors and Sarah and Samantha’s knowledge will play an important role in developing our services further for clients. We support our clients to achieve product registration across the world and we are known for our expertise in handling difficult and complex substances. Sarah and Samantha’s in-depth specialist knowledge enhances the 160 years combined analytical experience we already offer across the team.

James Stuart, Managing Director of EPP Ltd, confirms,

      We have seen a consistent increase in the demand for our expert analytical services, including 5-Batch analysis, and we are delighted to welcome Sarah and Samantha so we can continue to expand our services globally.

Sarah Farr is a Masters graduate from The University of Edinburgh and her degree focused on medicinal and biological chemistry. Sarah spent a year researching at The University of Hong Kong, studying synthetic and structural activity relationships of potential drug analogues based on the active ingredient in a Chinese herbal medicine. Sarah’s Masters’ project involved the synthesis of enzyme resistant compounds mimicking the biotinylation of histone proteins for use in epigenetic studies.

Sarah advises,

      I am thrilled to be starting my career at EPP as an analyst. I am keen to use and develop on the knowledge and experience gained from my degree and look forward to being a part of EPP’s future.

Samantha Moreton has completed a PhD at The University of Strathclyde and studied Bioanalytical Chemistry where her research focussed on the development and optimisation of new methods for stabilising nanomaterials. Following extensive characterisation Samantha found these materials had great potential for use in future biomedical applications such as cancer diagnosis and therapy. Previously Samantha’s undergraduate degree in Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry from The University of Glasgow included a research project involving the synthesis and characterisation of potential anti-cancer therapeutics using a variety of analytical techniques.

Samantha said,

      EPP is known for the superior quality of its analytical services. I am delighted to be joining such a experienced and expert team.
