About Elkay


With over 40 years supplying the UK scientific community, Elkay have gained an in-depth knowledge and understanding of what scientists, buyers and inventory personnel need from their laboratory consumables and the support they require to use them efficiently.


We are proud that we are able to maintain not only loyal staff but loyal customers too. This helps us to ensure a personal touch to each of our customers, which is  rare these days with the growing number of multi-national corporations.


A huge advantage Elkay has over other companies is our ability to respond quickly to both our customers needs and the demands of the economic climate of the times. We listen, we manage and we respond positively and swiftly where we can. Our fundamental objective always to remain focussed on providing our customers with a service level that is second to none.

Serving You

Working out of our 1200 M2 Basingstoke storage facility, we maintain a 95% NEXT DAY fulfilment rate, ensuring our customers get what they need when they need it. We use FedEx as our delivery partner and Rawlings (Basingstoke) for pallets. We trust them with our products and know they will continue to give our customers the service they come to expect from Elkay.  All Elkay procedures and quality policies adhere to ISO 9001:2015 standards which guarantees our customers full traceability and consistency on each and every order.






Postitive Steps...

Environmental and Social Responsibilities policies are a fundamental part of a company’s business strategy. Here at Elkay we are constantly reviewing new ways that we can lessen our impact on the environment.      

When printing our catalogues we use 100% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper and use only vegetable-based inks. We have taken positive steps towards meeting our goals and look to set the benchmark for our competitors, suppliers and customers alike. The FSC badge ensures rigid standards are maintained for protecting biodiversity, wildlife and timber resources. The timber used does not contribute to habitat loss, displacement of indigenous peoples, water pollution, or violence against humans and wildlife.



Our Culture Pipettes and RefillPro Tip Refill System have less packaging waste. The RefillPro system also reduces plastic waste by up to 60% and uses recyclable tip racks that were originally made from 100% recycled plastic. Elkay also works in association with a plastics recycling company to ensure customers who wish to recycle used pipette tip racks can do so (for further information on Elkay Recycling Program, see 'Recycling' via our 'Services' drop-down at the top of this webpage.)



The Eco-Flo™ packaging 'peanuts' we use when shipping our products are made from sustainable, GM-free starch, are 100% biodegradable, fully compostable and easily reusable (edible too!... although we wouldn't recommend it). As a matter of course we also reuse any packaging that we receive in suitable condition.


In our head office we recycle all suitable waste. We send off our used printer cartridges to be refilled where possible and have recently become part of the TerraCycle® 'Tassimo Brigade' to which new useable items are made (like watering cans and rubbish bins) and a portion of these proceeds go to charity.
