About Us


In 2001, our founder Raymond Colton, identified the opportunity to provide extractables and leachables testing to the biopharma industry. With the goal of ensuring patient safety through science-based E&L testing, VR Analytical was born.

VR Analytical was acquired by The Arch Sciences Group out of Manchester, UK. This transition started our relationship with Hall Analytical, among other labs that were later acquired. Most recently, The ARCH Sciences Group was acquired by Element Materials Technology.

We are very proud to be a part of The Element Family, helping to make tomorrow safer than today.
