The IYC 2011 provides an excellent vehicle for celebrating chemistry, which played a key in the formation of LGC (, an international science-based company and market leader in analytical, forensic and diagnostic services and reference standards.

LGC was founded almost 170 years ago as the Laboratory of the Government Chemist - a statutory function maintained by LGC today. Privatised in 1996, LGC is now majority-owned by funds managed by Bridgepoint.

With headquarters in Teddington, South West London, the LGC Group employs 1,400 staff in 27 laboratories and centres across Europe and at sites in India and China.

LGC looks forward to contributing to, and participating in, IYC events and activities during the year ahead.
