Macclesfield College has state of the art laboratory facilities in which a range of courses are delivered. Students work on Biological, Chemical and Forensic based practicals within this environment; using analytical tests such as aspectic microbiological techniques, titration, colorimetry, distillation, blood spatter analysis and separation/filtration/sample analysis practicals.
Students get to experience a more ‘hands-on’ environment which is unlike school laboratories and practical sessions. They get the opportunity to complete practical exercises alone, in pairs or small groups and the detailed nature of the work and techniques involved, mirror those completed in industry.
The lab itself has a wide range of equipment, a lot of which would only be found within an industrial laboratory facility. The laboratory is supported by technicians with a wealth of industrial experience providing students with an enriching teaching environment.
