Laboratory visit for Sixth Form scientists

Sixth Form scientists being shown testing equipment


In early July, ten Year 12 scientists visited Salamon and Seabar’s laboratory to expand their understanding of science in the working world.

Salamon and Sebar is the only fully independent laboratory in London. It provides analytical testing services and consultations to clients all over the UK and the rest of the world. They particularly work in testing for commodities used in animal feed, such as soya beans, kernels and sunflower seed.

The students were shown the whole testing process, from the receipt of the samples in the post room, and how they are couriered, through to the testing process. This included the weighing method and how different products are ground up for different tests. These testing methods have been studied by the students in recent months, but it was their first chance to see a fully operational wet lab and dry lab with sophisticated equipment.

The technical manager of the laboratory delivered the tour to the students, explaining all of the equipment and the importance of each part of the process. He also took questions from students about the laboratory and general queries on careers in science.
