Product Design Company needs Automotive Laboratory for conducting an environmental simulation study on a custom vehicle cover prototype. Study involvespartially submerging the car (with the cover) in water up to 4 feet in depth. The process would include placing the cover in the flooding area, placing the car in the cover, then flooding the area.

Skincare company needs dermatology clinical research laboratory for development of a protective cream for prolonged work in gloves that helps avoid excessive sweating on the skin of hands, restrains the growth of harmful microorganisms (bacteriostatic effect), and improves microcirculation in the vessels of the skin of hands, protects cells from harmful factors. This product has 3 main properties, which need to be confirmed: 1) Antiperspirant effect 2) Improvement of cutaneous respiration 3) Bacteriostatic effect We are planning to register this product as a cosmetic product. So we have to confirm these claims with test reports by 1) Antiperspirant effect was confirmed by gravimetric method and method the probe of Minor (iodine-starch test). The effect of the product was shown to be lasting up to 4 hours. 2) Skin respiration (cutaneous respiration) is the property, which includes all kinds of exchange processes in the skin (supplying the skin with oxygen), metabolic processes (synthesis of collagen and elastin), regeneration processes and improving the viability of the skin cells when exposed to harmful environmental factors. These properties are provided by the 2 components of product (caffeine and ginger extract) increasing ATP synthesis in the cell (under the influence of acetylglutamine), as well as the microcirculation in the skin. The effect of product to improve cutaneous respiration was confirmed by laser Doppler flowmetry. 3) Bacteriostatic effect the temporary suppression of the ability of microorganisms to reproduce (not the same as antibacterial action!). This effect is side-effect, because the composition of the product contains no antibacterial ingredients. The effect is achieved by the common action of the antiperspirant complex.

UK geology laboratory needed for clay testing for suitability for end uses as clay bricks, tiles, ceramics etc. Scope of testing to include:
An initial gradient firing on each borehole material (10 samples) to determine the firing temperature / colour related to each clay test piece after first milling to a suitable particle size range for clay brick manufacture.
Stage 2 work scope
The following tests will be carried out on the sample as received borehole material (10 samples):
· Particle size distribution - to be determined using both the sedigraph and dry sieving method, to cover the full size range of particles from millimetres to microns. The results would be collated to provide a full particle size distribution.
· XRF Analysis (with Loss on Ignition) - to be carried out to determine the bulk inorganic composition of the following 19 elemental oxides: SiO2, TiO2, CaO, MgO, K2O, Na2O, P2O5, Cr2O3, Mn3O4, ZrO2, HfO2, Al2O3, Fe2, PbO, ZnO, BaO, SrO, SnO2, CuO and SO3 (SO3 reported as remaining after loss on ignition fusion and is not for an accurate SO3 figure).
· Soluble Sulphate using Ion Chromatography on water soluble extract from each borehole.
· Total Carbon & Total Sulphur using the Leco total combustion technique to determine the percentage total sulphur and total carbon of each borehole material.
Stage 3 work scope
The following processing to take place on each borehole material to prepare fired specimens (5 samples selected after stage 2):
· Dried and Fired Shrinkages on five (5) appropriate prepared clay samples: to be tested for each borehole material to determine both the dried shrinkage from green state to after drying at 110 C, and shrinkage from being dried at 110 C to fully fired specimens. The firing temperature will be confirmed for each borehole material after the initial gradient firing.
· Water Absorption - on five (5) appropriate prepared clay samples: to be tested for each fired borehole material
· Summary Report - Summarizing all data with conclusions on the best materials for brick making, referencing typical brick properties.
· Fired samples retained to use as reference samples
