Warwick Analytical Service, the analytical division of Exeter Analytical (UK) Ltd., is able to investigate and precisely measure the optical activity of samples with an accuracy of +/- 0.002 degrees for optical rotations of less than 1 degree.

Using state-of-the-art polarimetry instrumentation, Warwick Analytical Service (WAS) is able to offer a high quality service for measurement of the optical activity of newly synthesised compounds, quantitative analysis of sugars, quality control of pharmaceutical drugs for enantiomeric purity and monitoring of enzymatic reactions. Operating at five wavelengths all measurements of optical rotation are of the highest possible accuracy and precision. Where samples are scarce use of an ultra microbalance combined with a 100mm micro cell allows accurate measurement from only 2ml of solution.
