• About Cherwell Laboratories

    Environmental Monitoring & Process Validation Specialists

    Cherwell Laboratories was founded by Lawrence Whittard in 1971 as a veterinary diagnostic laboratory and over the years has evolved to where it is today – specialist suppliers of products for environmental monitoring, cleanroom bio-decontamination and process validation for healthcare, pharmaceutical and industrial applications. From our site in Bicester, we manufacture Redipor® Prepared Media, our own range of microbiological media products which has been developed to meet the specific needs of our customers. We are also the UK distributor for SAS microbial air samplers and cleanroom bio-decontamination products from Mar Cor Purification.

    More information on how Cherwell Laboratories has developed over the years is available through the our History page.

    Our Ethos

    Cherwell focus on supplying high quality products supported by excellent customer service and a “can do” attitude. We believe in supplying the right product to all our customers on time, every time. We also appreciate that customers have differing requirements, and are always happy to discuss bespoke solutions and products.

    This ethos is fundamental within the business and is based on the values nurtured in a family business. These values have helped us achieve ISO9001:2015 accreditation for ‘the manufacture and supply of microbiological media. Supply, service and calibration of viable air sampling equipment. Distribution and sales of laboratory equipment and consumables’. For further information on our ISO9001:2015 accreditation please download our current Quality Management Certificate.



    If you have a requirement for any of our prepared media, environmental monitoring or cleanroom bio-decontamination products, please complete our quotation request form or contact us.
