Some important news… : We are delighted to announce that WEDINOS has been fully funded by Welsh Government until 2025. This will not only ensure continuity of this important service but will allow for improvements and expansion in capacity and coverage through the purchase of new analytical tools. Please note that whilst this equipment is being installed, WEDINOS has to suspend testing for a limited period. Testing will resume at the beginning of May 2018 so your patience is required and we very much thank you for your continued support.
