Who are NT Labs?

Ever since our launch in 1982, we have been industry leaders in research and development.  We are proud to be a UK-based, multi-award winning manufacturer of effective water treatments, medicines, test kits and foods servicing the koi, pond, tropical and marine markets.  Our company name reflects this commitment to revolutionary thinking, after all the ‘NT’ of NT Labs stands for New Technology.

In 2007, we became fully licenced with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate for small animal medicines (SAM0001). As you can see from our SAM number, we were the first manufacturer in the UK to obtain this licence to produce veterinary medicines for ornamental fish in the UK. This heritage is something we are incredibly proud of and shows our dedication and commitment to what we do. In order to manufacture medicines for the treatment of animals, it is essential that we are fully licensed and compliant to the high VMD requirements. Within the industry, some companies choose to outsource the manufacturing of medicines so that they don’t need to obtain a licence, but we are proud to be leading the way and doing all of this in-house.

Alongside our VMD licence, we are also fully compliant with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP), meaning that we are dedicated providers of top quality products for our customers. Behind the brand, there is a team of biologists, production, quality control, sales and marketing professionals all based at our facility in the south east of England.

Our products are available from a network of specialist wholesalers, each one collecting product from us every week. Wholesalers then transport our products to their VMD-approved distribution centres, and from there, they deliver stock to our authorised aquatic retailers each week. NT Labs choose to support independent retailers: we do not supply to popular online market places, or discount retail chains. The reason behind this is simple; independent aquatic retailers are key to keeping this industry thriving, and as hobbyists, we rely heavily on the retailers to provide us with livestock but also top quality advice which helps make us all better fish keepers.

Recent Testimonial

Koi Water Barn and NT Labs have a long history of working together, we feel that the products in the Koi Care range offer our customers a quality product at a realistic price. This is backed up by extensive research and development that is carried out at the NT Labs HQ located in Kent. They are not far away from our shop at Coolings (Knockholt, near Sevenoaks), this is an added bonus for our customers as they are buying from a local UK based company.

We have been working closely with NT labs for many years now. We stock their Pond range and test kits, we strongly believe they are the best liquid test kits on the market, we use them in-store and have sold many over the years. Last year we have began stocking more of their fantastic ranges including their Pro-f food range and Aquarium range of water treatments.

“I Just wanted to say thank you for the help with bacterial issues I had in my pond. I can happily say that the mouth rot of one fish and the fin rot of two others has cleared up to near perfection now. I have been really impressed with the service from your technical team. I have already recommended online that people ask NT Labs about their products and recommended usage.”

Your Probiotic food is absolutely brilliant! I bought twenty one 1 year old Japanese Koi via a fish farm in Ogata, Japan about 3 years ago. I’ve been feeding them on Probiotic and Probiotic Growth in the summer months. Some of are now 2ft in length and of superior quality. It’s not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

I have used many products for the eradication of aiptasia over the last 15 years. Often with poor results. After purchasing the Anti-Aiptasia, I was astonished with the results! Absolutely fantastic and not like the competitors which normally contains some form of hydroxide. I would highly recommend NT Labs Anti-Aiptasia. This is arguably the best in the market!

We use Blanketweed Balance, and find it highly successful in the battle against Blanketweed. We recommend it to all of our customers and feedback is very positive. It is now our best selling Blanketweed treatment. Another top quality product from NT Labs

I work at a pet store in Durban (South Africa) and have had the best results with my salt water aquariums that I have EVER seen. I have been in the industry for about 10 years now and seriously recommend the products supplied by NT Labs. All our customers that have used anti-aiptasia swear by this product and have said that it over rules every other product out there. Highly recommended.

"I called your offices for support and was put in touch with one of your Aquatic Biologists. He has been incredibly helpful... Without your help, my fish would be suffering and I might have had to stop keeping Koi. I cannot recommend your products, or staff, enough."
