About us



OMCS was established in October 2002 as a point of contact for those wishing to access facilities and expertise within Oxford University's Department of Materials. Facilities were augmented by the UK Technology Strategy Board's Micro Nano Technology programme with a range of equipment under the banner BegbrokeNano which was one of 24 UK nanotech centres, established under the previous Government to increase industry's ability to exploit micro and nanotechnology.

Now operating without any direct government support, OMCS continues to provide customers with services that they can rely on to complement their in-house capabilities. OMCS operates an ISO 9001:2015 certified management system. 

OMCS is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited facility for elemental analysis of Glass and Glass products. For more information please refer to the Schedule of Accreditation.
