Merck is a leading science and technology company in healthcare, life science and performance materials.
Merck has around 50,000 employees working to further develop technologies that improve and enhance life – from biopharmaceutical therapies to treat cancer or multiple sclerosis, cutting-edge systems for scientific research and production, to liquid crystals for smartphones and LCD televisions.
The Technical Centre of Merck Chemicals UK at Chilworth, Southampton became the first Britest Associate in early 2016. The Technical Centre is a research and development intensive site within Merck Chemicals developing and commercializing materials to enable applications in state-of-the-art electronics devices and displays. Merck has a long established reputation in process development and high purity manufacturing, and the Britest tools and methods are an excellent fit to further augment Merck's existing toolkit and expertise, helping build quality by design as early as possible in the R&D process.
