About Southern Scientific Services LTD

Southern Scientific’s origin dates back to 1994 from a small family business at Dunrine, Killarney. The company initially focused on soil analysis and under the guidance of its Managing Director, Kate Murphy it has significantly diversified its capabilities and portfolio both nationally and internationally to become one of Ireland’s leading Environmental Planning Consultancies, Testing Facility and Research and Training Providers. Over the years we continued to expand and in 2016 moved to our new bespoke building at Farranfore . Split over two levels, all of our laboratories have state of the art equipment and a team of highly qualified scientists. We continue to invest and increase our in-house capabilities with the addition of highly specialised and modern equipment as well as attracting talented pre and post doctorate employees. Our success and organic growth can be attributed to our team of highly qualified experts operating in house from our ISO 17025 and INAB accredited testing laboratories where we provide a full range of chemistry and microbiology analysis for five key areas of water, air, soil, food and drugs. Serving a diverse client base from small to large businesses in the public and private sectors we continue to build on our academic success and technical expertise that enables us to provide a range of bespoke and science led solutions for our customers in Agricultural, Environmental and Planning, Microbiological, Pharma, Healthcare and Research and Education.
