Advanced Materials Research LaboratoryClient Testimonials

The AMRL helped us through time-critical elemental analysis on a range of innovative medical tools, soon to be launched onto the market. Thanks to their support throughout the process and their professional consult, we could confidently feedback to the manufacturers. We highly recommend the AMRL and look forward to our next collaboration with them.

Phil Harris, CEO of Clear Surgical

“HKA is one of the world’s leading providers of advisory, consulting and expert services for the construction, manufacturing, process and technology industries. Failure assessment is one of our core capabilities and we have used the University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Materials Research Laboratory (AMRL) to assist us with test work. Examples include failure in a 14-in butterfly valve and failures of road studs. AMRL has carried out scanning electron microscopy, optical microscopy, hardness and mechanical testing and compositional analysis to assist us. We have been very pleased with the service that AMRL provides.” 

Daphne Wassermann, Technical Director at HKA

“I am a project engineer for Doosan Babcock’s Asset Integrity Management business group. We primarily work on full-scale testing solutions for major players in the oil and gas industry. I approached the AMRL team with a project to test subsea pipe insulation samples for thermal conductivity. I was very impressed with the technical capability of the AMRL and the attention to detail of all the staff. Our project was completed successfully and on time in July 2017, our client was pleased with the results and detail of reporting received, and we plan to use the AMRL to support us on further projects.”

Chris Phelps, Project Engineer at Doosan Babcock

“We recently engaged AMRL to carry out analysis on a series of samples. The service was first class. There was excellent communication throughout the process and the work was completed on time with a detailed and informative report.””
