Sebastien Chanlon is an Analytical Scientist by training, and he has vast experience across Clinical, Environmental and Life Science applications. He currently manages a busy department at Biomnis, with 35 members of staff and several major instruments, and his daily work often requires him to solve problems.

Staying Ahead

Sebastien purchases several instrument per year, most recently the Waters ACQUITY UPLC Sample Organizer, and he will soon be acquiring the latest PerkinElmer Nexion ICP-MS instrument for novel zinc diagnostics in blood and urine.

His innovative approach to developing new tests means he has to keep abreast of all technologies, and stay up-to-date with the latest innovations across clinical, analytical and forensic disciplines.

Why SelectScience?

"SelectScience helps me be aware of all the different technologies available across many different technique and application areas - all in one place," said Sebastien.

Beta Testing the New SelectScience Website...


  • The green color!
  • Video helps me to learn more about new products, to show how they work and how they would look in my laboratory. They also help to share information with scientists in the department.
  • The new homepage is much clearer, enabling me to go straight to the latest news stories.


  • No ideas at the moment, but perhaps continue to make it easier to see what's new across different fields.
