The Melbec Difference

We have been out visiting clients over the past year, something that we have really missed doing during the lockdowns and restrictions, and we have loved getting to see our clients, both new and old in person! One thing that we have found whilst speaking to our customers, are the lovely things they have to say about our services and the little things they appreciate us doing that make us so different to suppliers they have worked with in the past.

Here a few things that have been fed back to us from our clients about how Melbec is different!


Technical Knowledge

Within our team here at Melbec Microbiology, we have varied and extensive knowledge of the microbiology industry. With an emphasis on cosmetics and personal care products as well as biocidal and viricidal testing, the team holds a wealth of industry expertise within the microbiological testing arena.

Some of our clients aren’t as technical as others and rely on us to be able to answer questions they may have around testing requirements and product development. Most recently, we have received these lovely testimonials from our clients:

“We are a company that are relatively new to microbiology and the testing of biocides. Fortunately, Melbec microbiology have been patient, helpful, supportive and willing to help with educating our team and facilitating the development of our product strategy which has proved invaluable. Furthermore, when we engage with potential customers and other professional organisations in this field the fact that Melbec have done our tests carries great weight and engenders confidence. Finally, and perhaps most importantly the Melbec team are responsive, helpful and just great to work with.” – Medical Device Manufacturer

“Service is always delivered on time in a friendly manner. I always feel comfortable approaching with questions regarding testing. They are now our go to lab for our testing.” – Infection Prevention Control Product Manufacturer


Consultative Approach

Both our Technical Director, Dawn, and our Technical Manager, Liam, come from a cosmetic and personal care manufacturing background, meaning that they understand where contamination might be coming from as well as help with other issues our clients may be experiencing with their manufacturing lines.

This knowledge has proven invaluable to some of our clients and we are lucky enough to have had these kind words from our clients:

“We value Melbec’s technical expertise and support highly; particularly with investigations of out of specification results with our (challenging) product.” – Supplement Manufacturer

“Liam is very helpful and had some good calls with him and some more to refer back it with questions.” – Hygiene Products Manufacturing Company


Going the extra mile

There are so many ways in which we have been told we go the extra mile (we might have to start calling it the Melbec Mile!), but most importantly, we make sure that we listen to our clients. By listening to what our clients need, a few things we have been able to implement are;

Some comments from our clients about us going the extra mile:

“Melbec have gone above and beyond to support our business needs.” – Skincare Product Manufacturer

“In our opinion, the current service and lead times for testing work really well for us, and we are delighted with the current service as a business. No matter what would our request is either a visit to Melbec for training purposes, an urgent mid-testing update, or a quick call to discuss results, it never has been an issue.” – Cosmetics Manufacturing Company
