T.E. Laboratories is a multi-divisional SME, driven by a passion for chemistry and innovation. The company’s key business areas include environmental, oil and fuel analysis; chemical manufacturing; training and research. TelLab also operates a new product development unit, focused on water monitoring solutions that overcome the limitations of spot sampling.
As research officer, Sandra has been instrumental to TelLab’s success in over a dozen EU-funded research applications, which have enabled the development of Aquamonitrix™ – TelLab’s new, game-changing water quality sensor, currently being trialled by the US EPA and at sites across Europe.
In addition to in-house development, TelLab has acquired the worldwide licence to manufacture and sell Chemcatcher® from Portsmouth University, and Sandra is responsible for the day-to-day co-ordination of Chemcatcher® activities within TelLab.
She has a Bachelor of Medicine (BM) degree from the National University of Ireland, Galway, and has keen insights into the development of science and environmental policy.
