Established in 1986 Lancaster Laboratories is Ireland's leading independent test and research laboratory providing microbiological, chemical and environmental analyses to the Food, Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and Chemical industries throughout Ireland and Europe.

Lancaster Laboratories is part of the Eurofins international group of Laboratories. We employ over 135 people across a range of disciplines in our fully equipped laboratories in Dungarvan, County Waterford.

All technical staff have 3rd level qualifications in relevant subjects. Our commitment to employing suitably qualified and capable people is a reflection of our dedication to the quality assurance our clients expect.

We have combined laboratory facilities of 2,500m2 that includes suites of dedicated laboratories that perform a comprehensive package of services to the pharmaceutical, food and medical device industries. In addition, we perform chemical and microbiological analysis on environmental samples for all sectors.

We have built a loyal and extensive customer base that enjoys our quality of service, flexibility, value for money and confidentiality. Amongst our valued customers are many of Ireland's, the UK's and Europe's leading manufacturing companies including food processing companies, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers, supermarket multiples, government and semi-state bodies.


We offer an efficient, on-site sample collection service. We offer frequenct sample collections across the country. To avail or enquire about a collection please email samplecollection@lancasterlabs.com .
Our extensive transport system also includes a depot in Dublin where samples can be dropped to Monday to Friday before 12.30pm with all samples delivered to the laboratory same day. Please contact our Business Development Team for more information.


We understand our clients' need to receive results rapidly and in an efficient manner and so we have designed a web reporting system. This enables our clients to receive results as soon as they have been approved in the laboratory. This facility allows the client to determine the style of report that is most appropriate to their requirements. In addition, web based reporting permits trending of results. This system is fully validated to 21 CFR part II requirements.

Lancaster Laboratories offers a contract cGMP facility with a difference and this difference is based on the level of customer care we offer our clients. We understand the individual requirements of each client and assign a customer services specialist to each new client to ensure they always have a direct connection to our facilities.

We encourage the development of strong working relationships and we continuously look for new and better ways of ensuring our clients feel that our facilities and our staff are always available for information and support.
