Our laboratories in Lowestoft and Weymouth are dedicated to providing support, analysis and research for our projects, as well as helping to ensure that Cefas stays at the cutting edge of marine and freshwater science and technology.

Our laboratory services are underpinned by the full range of accreditation and certification of quality. Our Science Services team plan an ongoing programme of investment in our laboratory capability to ensure we continue to prepare and make available the equipment we need for our experts to provide the scientific services they need now and in the future.

The Lowestoft laboratories have undergone refurbishment and a new office building has been erected as part of our Estates2020 project. The new building is one of the most environmentally friendly in the region and should reduce energy consumption for the site by as much as 33% as a result of a smaller floor area, use of LED lighting and more efficient heating.
