About Us

Innovative Physical Organic Solutions (IPOS) was formed in 2006 at The University of Huddersfield by Prof. Mike Page, Dr Nicholas Powles and Dr Matthew Stirling as a commercial facility to provide contract analytical and process development services to external companies.

In 2009 IPOS secured an ERDF grant which enabled the construction of a purpose built facility equipped with a broad range of state-of-the-art instrumentation. Following this, in 2012 IPOS was awarded Centre of Excellence status by Agilent Technologies, making it the only laboratory in the UK to achieve this status alongside 12 European laboratories.

As part of this arrangement IPOS regularly assists Agilent Technologies with application development and customer demonstrations.

IPOS has a strong commitment to quality, reflected in achieving ISO9001 accreditation in 2013 from UKAS and EU GMP status in 2014 from the MHRA.

Close working customer relationships are at the heart of IPOS and enable the constant improvement of systems to deliver excellent customer service and the expertise and instrumentation necessary to meet your business requirements.

LSN Diffusion Ltd have always received excellent service from IPOS. They have been most helpful in allowing us to characterise the melting behaviour of our alloy powders. Their reports have been well communicated and received in good time. We are happy to recommend them.
