Celebrate Earth Month with Cytiva

Last year with Cytiva, we helped to remove and recycle 25 metric tons of plastic – which translates to 1.25 million ocean-bound plastic bottles!

Now, in April 2021, we want to go one step further and we need your help!

Cytiva’ s goal is to remove 30 metric tons of plastic in 30 days, by collaborating once again with Plastic Bank. Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocess the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain.  

We hope you’ll help us to make a difference again.


Today we take the time to honour the founder of Scientific Laboratory Supplies (SLS), Peter Chapman

After 30 years as founder and Managing Director, Peter has decided to “hang up his boots” with the intention of spending more quality time with his family. He will be greatly missed by his ‘other family’ - SLS. A family he brought together and who will miss him, his approach to management and his personality greatly – but probably not his dodgy jokes.  

Peter brought an informality to a formal working environment and was passionate that people should enjoy what they do. He cared for all his employees and always found time for face-to-face personal engagement, creating a feeling of camaraderie that came to be known as ‘SLSness’.  

Peter expected a strong and decisive work ethic from all in his employment and he was not one to procrastinate on decision making. His ethos to work was “Just ******* Do It!” Also retiring today is Peter’s worn-out exclamation key!!!!!!!!  

Despite retiring from his position at SLS, Peter still has a lot to keep him busy - with a portfolio of companies still under his stewardship including property and construction, software developers and a football agency.    

Peter will now get to spend more time at home with his wife Kristen and enjoy his five children, three grandchildren and the simple things in life. Family with a side of football and holidays all washed down with a large glass of Pinot Noir.   

All the best Peter and Thank you for everything - from everyone at SLS.
