Specializing in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical and medical devices sectors, SCRI-IS maximizes system availability and production integrity, minimizing risk for clients. Clients are better equipped to meet patient needs due to future proofed facilities and processes.

SCRI-IS helps clients to drive change with established and proven solutions, and supports their aims to achieve ambitious climate action and sustainability targets.

Why We Do It

SCRI-IS understands the challenges that life science companies are facing. There is increasing pressure to adopt new more dynamic manufacturing, maintenance, and digitalization strategies, often within legacy facilities. Companies also need to ensure operational continuity and product quality. SCRI-IS collaborates with and supports clients in delivering these mission critical changes.

SCRI-IS understands the passion that its clients have for their patients. These organizations have a responsibility to ensure that their life-changing medicines are available for patients. Life science companies put the needs of their customers at the top of their priority list. SCRI-IS shares this passion, assisting clients in going beyond the status-quo to alter the lives of their patients.

SCRI-IS understands the need for the industry to support a transition to a carbon neutral global economy. The company helps clients to reduce the amount of plastic waste that is generated during the manufacturing process, thereby reducing the amount of material that would traditionally be sent to landfill sites.

SCRI-IS Facility

SCRI-IS operates out of a state of art 200 sqm facility in Central Dublin called the Callan Laboratory.

Named after the famed Irish scientist Nicholas Joseph Callan the purpose-made facility contains several laboratories tailored to support the needs of the life science sector. All laboratories are GMP compliant and built to cleanroom standards.

Coupled with a robust management system, SCRI-IS follows strict procedures to ensure quality and consistency. We ensure equipment is suitable for use in GMP manufacturing environments by being performance tested, inspected, and over-hauled to simulate in service conditions. We can carry out detailed root-cause analysis testing on failed components.

The SCRI-IS facility is the only one of its kind in Ireland, and is one of a handful in existence globally.
