Research and technical services

Callaghan Innovation’s RTS and Commercial Business groups provide services to help business take their ideas from concept to commercial reality.

The Commercial group includes two subsidiaries, the carbohydrate chemist GlycoSyn and KiwiStar Optics, and the Measurement Standards Laboratory. 

The value and effectiveness of these services is evidenced by the growth in commercial revenue received from our customers, as well as the demand and take-up of our programmes and services.

In the nine months to 31 March this year, we provided R&D and commercial services to 304 organisations. Inquiries about our services clearly indicate that demand is continuing to grow.
