Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre

Services for Business

Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre provide a wide range of analytical services for industrial clients on all of our instruments. The centre has a wealth of experience in conducting consultancy projects and has dedicated staff to ensure projects can be delivered on time.

Analytical Equipment

All of our equipment is available for external consultancy. We have recently had significant investment in the centre which has allowed us to purchase a XPS, STEM, Micro XRF and two JEOL FEGSEM’s. Please contact lmcc@lboro.ac.uk if you would like further details on each system's specification or general advice on which technique may provide you with the best results for your specific problem. 

Our Bespoke Approach to Every Project

We understand that every project is different and clients have different approaches. LMCC is very flexible and our approach can be tailored to your requirements. Below are some of the ways in which LMCC may be able to support your company:

  • Option A: We can provide an initial assessment of the specific problem and provide suggestions on what may be the most suitable technique(s) to solve your problem. We can provide a complete package from start to finish, where the start can consist of extracting the samples, all the way through to interpreting the data with full project management and a final report supplied at the end of the project.
  • Option B: We also work with clients who have a clear vision of which technique(s) should be used and request that we generate the data, carry out the data analysis and provide all the data for them to interpret.
  • Option C: We provide the option for clients to be trained on the equipment available in LMCC, which then allows the client to operate the machine independently. Our clients can book through our online booking system and will receive a monthly statement of their usage. LMCC staff will be available if clients have questions or would like to ask a member of staff for advice.
  • Option D: If you have a relatively simple task to carry out you can purchase time on the analytical equipment using our E-Store. At the end of the session we will provide you with the results on a USB memory stick.
