Joyce Wilcox has joined R-Biopharm Rhone from Glasgow Scientific Services, a local authority official control laboratory, where she was providing a food & feed analytical service for the Public Analyst.
Joyce graduated from the University of Strathclyde in 2008 with a Masters Degree in analytical chemistry and has built upon the modern sample preparation techniques and instrumental methods of analysis covered in the degree through contract jobs in the food and feed, pharmaceutical and environmental sectors.
She has extensive experience in the analysis of food additives and food contaminants, including for example, in artificial colours, mycotoxins, pesticide residues and drug residues, and has developed and validated new methods of analysis for food & feed safety, as well as gaining UKAS accreditation for key methods.
She said: “I am pleased to have joined R-Biopharm Rhone. It is a forward-thinking company, which, in bringing innovative new products to the marketplace, offers solutions to customers for food and feed analysis. I am looking forward to providing a high standard of technical service to support our customers.”
R-Biopharm Rhône, which supplies the agri-food industry and sells to major multinational businesses in the food industry, is based in the West of Scotland Science Park in Glasgow. It founded 25 years ago to make mycotoxin kits, which test for poisons created by moulds.
Managing director Simon Bevis said: “Joyce is a very welcome addition to our laboratory testing team. She has extensive experience in analytical testing and I believe her knowledge and experience will be a major asset to our business.”
