Galgo (UK) Ltd has been the official supplier for CHEMetrics water analysis products in the UK and Ireland since 1980.

CHEMetrics, Inc., based in Midland, Virginia, have been supplying and developing innovative water analysis systems for over 40 years. The founder, a chemist, Gordon Rampy, saw a need for faster, simpler, and safer water testing solutions, and developed an innovative technology for colourimetric water testing applications, based on a unique self-filling reagent ampoule. He started CHEMetrics in 1969 to bring this exciting new technology to market.

Today, CHEMetrics manufactures and ships millions of water testing ampoules every year. The CHEMetrics' innovative Research and Development Group continuously develops exciting new products to meet newly emerging water analysis needs.

CHEMetrics products are also known for their high quality and dependability, the result of meticulous and rigorous testing by the company's Quality Assurance team; ensuring the products perform as you expect them to; and providing accurate and reliable results in the laboratory or out in the field, whether testing a single sample or large batches of samples at a time.
