QUAD Systems establishes UK base at Milton Park

Leading Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) specialists QUAD Systems has selected Milton Park, to be its first premises in the UK

The Swiss company, with headquarters located in Zurich, has moved into 127-17 Olympic Avenue, Milton Park, as part of its plans for European expansion.

Founded in February 2020, QUAD (Quantum Analytical Detection) Systems specialises in the development and manufacture of NMR spectroscopy products. NMR instruments allow the properties and make-up of materials to be determined by analysing their behaviour under a strong magnetic field. Detection technology for this spectroscopic process has a wide range of applications including forensic science, nutrition and the detection of explosives. QUAD Systems’ mission is to realise the potential of NMR spectroscopy, by providing solutions to complex technical problems with their industry-leading technology and increasing its accessibility to the wider market through low customer costs.

QUAD Systems’ new premises at Milton Park comprises laboratory and office space to accommodate their specialisation in NMR product development. Additionally, the space will feature dedicated ‘showcase’ laboratories, enabling the delivery of product demonstrations to customers and stakeholders.

Jeremy Lea, Commercial Director at QUAD Systems, said: “The flexibility offered at Milton Park to accommodate future growth, in addition to its access to talent from world-leading universities and the wider Oxfordshire life science cluster, made it an ideal location for us to begin our journey in the UK. 

With decades of combined NMR experience, QUAD Systems works within a network of highly-experienced partners across the globe, providing new, innovative solutions with outstanding performance for demanding applications in NMR spectroscopy.

Tom Booker, Commercial Manager, MEPC Milton Park, said: “QUAD Systems’ dynamic, innovative and globalist approach to science and technology makes them a great fit for Milton Park. It’s a pleasure to welcome QUAD Systems to our community. We feel privileged that they have selected Milton Park as the location for their first premises in the UK and look forward to being part of their continued success.
