The LHC has begun collecting data and the first results have now been published. This is truly an exciting time in the field as we wait for the experimental data to exclude or verify new physics beyond the Standard Model. In order to make a precise prediction for the LHC one must go beyond the leading order of our perturbation series. In this thesis I present the extension of tools for the automation of one loop calculations for supersymmetric models. The second part of the thesis contains the application of these tools to neutralino pair production in the Minimal Supersymmetric Model.
