With our unique access to world-leading experts and facilities we are able to offer a wide range of services designed to carry out product development and evaluation, including laboratory, semi-field and field testing of repellents, insecticides and insecticide-treated materials, head lice products, attractants, other arthropod control tools and clinical evaluation of after bite products.

Most testing is done at our state-of-the-art laboratories at LSHTM in London, but products that require semi-field or field evaluation are tested at one of our many field laboratories and locations around the world. We are also a centre for WHO Pesticide Evaluation Scheme approved testing and the procedures used by the testing facility are improved versions of WHO-recommended protocols.
