British Clinical Services - Working in partnership with GPE Scientific

GPE Scientific work closely with British Clinical Services (BCS). A uniquely qualified, close-knit team of biosafety and laboratory Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) specialists, to provide a personal, bespoke and comprehensive service for almost any application.

With their extensive industry experience, they can provide the expertise and tools to ensure your containment equipment is performing at its optimum. Having the BCS team on board – and all the capabilities that brings with it – allows you to rest easy in the knowledge that you are keeping your teams protected while ensuring the integrity of your work is uncompromised and your responsibilities to protecting the environment are well and truly taken care of. BCS understand the value of you being able to solely focus on your important work while they get on with keeping your equipment and facilities running smoothly.

Their ability to apply sound safety and containment principles to a vast array of situations and environments makes them a reliable supplier of choice to customers in numerous industries. Their existing client list includes businesses within the scientific, medical, pharmaceutical and education industries, though this should not be seen as an exhaustive list. To ensure they maintain the highest standards, all of their team members receive regular third-party training alongside a rigorous internal training and auditing programme.

BCS partner with the leading industry manufacturers enabling them to supply, install and commission any containment equipment you might need. Where items cannot be procured, they are often able to commission bespoke solutions to meet your needs. Their mission is to provide a comprehensive one-stop shop approach to service every aspect of your facility and therefore work with a number of selected specialist partners in ducting, fabrication and metalwork, electrical engineering and HVAC to name a few.

When it comes to safely working within the potentially contaminated areas of your equipment, their dedicated, highly trained Fumigation team will deploy their market-leading sterilisation procedure. Their Chlorine Dioxide Gas-based system not only achieves the highest level of efficacy in reducing dangerous pathogens equal to that of Formaldehyde, but also presents the safest option. By eliminating the inherent risks of exposure to a known carcinogen, leaving no residue to deteriorate the surfaces of your equipment, and removing any opportunity for contact between harmful chemicals and personnel, their system is truly unbeatable.

An Introduction to BCS

Their bread and butter is the routine statutory Thorough Examination and Testing (TExT) of microbiological containment equipment and facilities, often referred to as Servicing by other providers. They make this distinction to demonstrate their difference in approach. Where others simply provide a tick-box exercise to conform with the bare minimum legal requirements, BCS continually strive to take not just a “best practice” approach, but an industry-leading, no-stone-left-unturned approach. In this way, they give their clients complete peace of mind and are able to collaboratively formulate proactive, planned preventative maintenance (PPM) schedules, keeping unscheduled costs and expensive downtime to a minimum by avoiding breakdowns and unforeseen repairs. Not only are they privy to, but are invited to comment on, advise and shape upcoming legislative and advisory changes. Through professional connections, BCS can ensure their and their customers’ practices not only comply well in advance, but go above and beyond. It is unsurprising, therefore, that the elusive “exemplary” HSE report has been obtained by more than one facility maintained by members of their staff.
