One of the services Callaghan Innovation provides to our customers is material analysis. This process identifies the core characteristics of a material to enable a customer to select the best material for a product or a process that the customer is developing. We also provide testing services of materials to our customers which enables them to decide on the durability of a material, once selected. Usually this is inorganic and metal materials but we also analyze a limited range of specialist organic matter.

Our current X-ray Diffractometer is at its end of life and needs to be replaced. We need a new X-ray Diffractometer so that we can continue to provide analytical services to our customers. The replacement must be fit for purpose for use with both organic and inorganic matter.

The deadline for this RFP is 12pm Monday 14 August 2017.
