   Analytical services

At Think Stothard as well as being a distributor of colour and appearance instruments, software and accessories we also offer an in house lab testing service.


This is ideal for organisations that do not have the immediate need or budget to purchase their own instrument.


Tests are carried out on a range of instruments in our own lab in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. Each test is performed on a instrument relevant to your application and if you wish you can specify a particular geometry and/or build.


After an inital set up cost to cover custom designing your method, reports and building your database you will then be able to come back to us as often as you like at small cost per sample.
