Milliken Chemical Opens European Microbiology Lab

Milliken Chemical Europe, a business unit of Spartanburg-based Milliken & Company’s Milliken Europe NV subsidiary, has opened the Milliken Europe Microbiology Laboratory at its technical center in Belgium. The lab will offer in-house material and finished-part testing, offer support and service to customers in Europe that use Milliken’s Alphasan® silver inorganic antimicrobial technology, and support Alphasan-related research and development projects.


“This new resource forms part of our strategy to expand our service in Europe, reinforcing Milliken’s commitment to prioritizing the needs of customers by providing quicker and more efficient technical support,” said Elke De Clerck, Ph.D., the new lab’s technical services manager, who oversees testing and interacts with customers and sales personnel. “We are looking forward to the opportunities this closer cooperation will bring, in particular with regard to exploring new application areas.”

The lab features inoculation and colony-counting facilities, incubators, safety cabinets, sterilization autoclaves and microscopy services. Assisting De Clerck is a lab coordinator who organizes and performs daily activities.
