Our History

Eurofins | ams was previously known as ams Laboratories Pty Ltd. It was founded in 1996 by the late Dr Paul Priscott with the goal of providing world-class analytical and consulting services in microbiology. ams Laboratories was established from the partnership of Applied Microbiology Services Pty Ltd and GM Laboratories Pty Ltd. 

Originally, we operated from a small, humble facility located in Rockdale, New South Wales. With the support from our customers and from their word-of-mouth referrals, our business grew and soon we were in search of a larger facility to operate from.

In 2007, we relocated to our current facility located in Silverwater, New South Wales. It is purpose-built for the type of high quality microbiological services we provide and is also where our head office is based. Then in March 2013, to better serve our customers in the Queensland area, we established a branch site in Brisbane.

Effective from 11th March 2016, Eurofins Scientific successfully acquired ams Laboratories Pty Ltd. Since then, the company name was changed to Eurofins ams Laboratories Pty Ltd and trading as Eurofins | ams. 


Our Facilities

We have testing facilities located both in Sydney and in Brisbane. Our state-of-the-art facilities were purpose-built for efficient sample processing, for a compliant testing environment and to allow for future expansion and diversification.  The cleanroom setup in our Sydney site allows sterile products testing to be done according to the respective standards.
