About Us

Based in Colchester, Essex, PIONEER RESEARCH CHEMICALS Ltd was established over 30 years ago by Colin and Avril Farahar as an independent manufacturer and supplier of reagents, stains, fixatives and buffers. Their aim was to build a company brand based on high quality products and excellent customer service. Although they are no longer with us, the present Directors continue to operate with the same values and beliefs.

Pioneer Research Chemicals has established an excellent reputation within the UK and Europe for the supply of competitively priced high quality products for use in hospitals and clinical diagnostic laboratories, research institutions, universities, veterinary and government agencies. Throughout our 30 years trading we have developed a wide range of expertise and experience and we are proud of the fact that we have built up a high number of long-standing customer relationships.

As a manufacturer we are able to offer complete flexibility, enabling us to respond quickly to customer requirements, for established and new products. Our R&D department works on developing new and innovative products to ensure we continue to meet our customers changing needs. Since 1999 we operate in accordance with the stringent requirements of ISO 9001 Quality Management System.

We only manufacture to order, with 97% dispatched next day by our dedicated and experienced team. Dispatch within the UK is by next day courier or via the HAZCHEM network to ensure safe delivery.

We are always looking to establish links with companies, throughout the UK and EUROPE, who may wish to use or distribute our products. For more information please contact us on:
