Our laboratory in Laval, Quebec (Montreal) has 2,800 square feet of research and office space and is located in a building devoted exclusively to R&D on the campus of INRS-IAF Research Institute. INRS is one of Canada's top universities in terms of research intensity. Our neighbors include R&D facilities of some of the world's most significant pharmaceutical and chemical companies, e.g., GSK, Sanofi, Merck, Roche, and Novartis. Our lab is currently equipped with advanced research and analytical equipment, including a Spectroscout XRF analyzer and a Spectro ARCOS EOP ICP (inductively coupled plasma) analyzer that we use for measuring the precious metal content of solids and liquids. We also have available to us a Hitachi Scanning Electron Microscope TM3000, a Retsch planetary ball mill, and a Retsch SM300 grinder. We are planning to acquire additional specialized equipment and lab technicians in 2015 to expand and accelerate our R&D activities.
