Case Study: Clinical Reference Laboratory (with RAMCO)


The Clinical Reference Laboratory is the biggest privately held clinical testing laboratories in the U.S., with facilities


  • Clearance of the Clinical Reference Laboratory’s UK facility
  • Decommission and resale of assets
  • Managing the project efficiently and with value retention in mind


The US medical giant, the Clinical Reference Laboratory approached Pickfords Business Solutions to manage the efficient clearance of its UK facility, based within the grounds of the Cambridge Science Park.
The facility was comprised predominantly of high-value scientific and medical equipment which needed to be removed as part of the complete site clearance. With a deadline fast approaching, Pickfords enlisted the support of Ramco, one of the UK's largest independent asset management and online auction companies, to coordinate the efficient decommissioning and resale of all assets.

During pre-removal planning and walk-rounds on site, the project team agreed on which equipment would be suitable for resale and how the removal would be executed and organised the equipment in preparation for an efficient and harmonious collection process.

Pickfords worked with Ramco, to deliver sustainable and cost-effective disposal solutions to the UK arm of the Clinical Reference Laboratory within the deadline of the project.


A total of 23 individual pieces of equipment were resold, providing the Clinical Reference Laboratory with a compliant and sustainable solution. In addition to the environmental benefits, this generated a sizeable and unexpected financial return for the Clinical Reference Laboratory.
