Why Drochaid Research Services?

Drochaid is the Scots Gaelic word for Bridge

  • With over 200 years of combined industrial experience we can span the technology readiness levels from invention to commercialisation, bringing you the right solutions at the right time
  • By virtue of our unique location and extensive established networks we can connect industry and academia, allowing  value to flow in both directions
  • We have a track record of applying our formidable resources to straddle sectors  including chemicals, energy, materials, biotechnology and the circular economy

Over the past fifteen years we have built a unique critical mass of equipment and expertise. Our shared background means we are equipped to provide output of the highest quality efficiently, flexibly and reliably.. We have ten fully serviced, state of the art laboratories. We have judiciously built an external network with complementary skills and experience to our own. This, coupled with our co-location in the University of St Andrews means an even broader skill set can be exploited as required and agreed.

We can adapt our approach to meet your needs; we can carry out contract work, give access to our equipment or even help you build capability on your own sites. In all of this we can guarantee the highest standards of confidentiality.
