Anachem - A leading distributor to the UK & Irish Scientific Communities for 40 Years!
For over 40 years Anachem has been a leading specialist in scientific laboratory supplies within the UK and Ireland. Since its establishment in 1970, Anachem has consistently focused on bringing to market, products that help to improve scientists’ overall laboratory productivity, assure the quality of their results and assist in meeting regulatory compliance. Anachem is ISO 9002 and ISO 14001 certified and its Pipette Service organization operates under the prestigious UKAS accreditation requirements.
Throughout Anachem’s 40 year history there have been very strong links with both Rainin and Gilson. Ken Rainin and Eric Marteau D’autry of Gilson France were founder members of the Company. In 1972 Anachem launched the Gilson PIPETMAN®, the world’s first adjustable pipette, into the UK market.
Working closely with Rainin, Anachem was one of the first companies to introduce electronic pipettes to help speed up laboratory workflows and bring new pipetting features. Together with Rainin's unique LTS system these also reduce pipetting forces to prevent repetitive strain injuries and safeguard scientists' health.
Anachem has developed its pipette service business dramatically over the years, raising awareness of the importance of regular maintenance and calibration of pipettes to assure their performance.
In 1986, Anachem held the first on-site pipette service clinic at SmithKline French or GSK as it is now known .
In 1998 the Anachem Pipette Service Centre achieved UKAS accreditation and has maintained this accolade ever since.
Today, Anachem provides an extensive array of laboratory instrumentation and consumables to scientists across all disciplines within academic, pharmaceutical, industrial, environmental and clinical areas.
Anachem Ltd. is very proud to have become part of METTLER TOLEDO International Inc. in January 2010, its fortieth anniversary year.
