Upcoming Trade Show Attendance
Paragon Scientific is responsible for the safety, protection and well-being of its’ people, we take this responsibility seriously.

We have a number of trade shows and other business travel scheduled during the next few months. The Directors have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) virus outbreak and reviewing guidance from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office regarding travel restrictions.

We have made the difficult decision to cancel attending and exhibiting at Pittcon, ArabLab and Analytica. We felt this is the best option as the spread of the virus is changing daily and impacting global travel restrictions.

We trust you understand our position on this matter.

UKAS & Brexit FAQs

We would like to assure all our customers that our accreditation to ISO 17025 & ISO 17034 under UKAS will continue to be recognised and our accreditation certificates will continue to be valid, regardless of the UK's departure from the European Union.
