“We were blown away by the level of research expertise and capability, as made readily available to us during the collaborative projects at MiCRA. We could never ourselves have delivered the projects in-house – not economically and certainly not in the time available – given the need for access to high-end equipment and specialist scientific expertise. This was a real eye-opener and we are more than delighted to continue this research collaboration and to commend the excellent work of the MiCRA team.”
