Solmedia is here to help you to run the most efficient laboratory

In 1910 Mr. F.R. Chopping, a Laboratory Technician at the Westminster Hospital demonstrated to the Microscopical Society for the first time in this country the use of desiccated culture media. He named the product ‘Solmedia’ and a Trade Mark was registered in that name on October 6th 1910.

He continued to produce and supply Solmedia to laboratories worldwide and in 1934 Solmedia was incorporated as a Limited Company. As a consequence, the range of products supplied was greatly increased to include all products associated with pathology and biological science.

During the war Solmedia was used to test the safety of water supplies and dairy produce for the British Forces overseas.

The establishment of the National Health Service in 1948 opened further opportunities for expansion, and larger premises were acquired in 1960, 1987 and again in 2013 to service the growth of the Healthcare Sector in routine and research pathology.

Today from the central offices and distribution centre in the West Midlands, Solmedia supplies an ever-expanding and innovative product range which meets the continual demand for increased productivity and ongoing development.
