SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Singapore has set up the infrastructure that will allow accurate measurement of chemicals used in various industries, and ensure it was in tune with international standards, the city-state’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) said on Wednesday.

The new infrastructure called Metrology in Chemistry (MiC) should provide local enterprises “the critical advantage” to access international markets for chemicals, food, pharmaceutical, medical and healthcare products and services, according to the statement.

“The primary beneficiaries of the new infrastructure are the chemicals and biomedical sectors which require accurate and comparable chemical and biological measurement,” it added.
