Materials analysis

Reliable lab analysis of workplace and environmental samples is a crucial component of managing people's health and safety in the workplace and the wider environment.

We provide specialist analysis to support workplace monitoring for hazardous substances, asbestos surveys, site investigations, environmental monitoring and product quality assurance. 

Our service includes expert advice on sample collection and assistance in determining what to measure. Our standard turn-around time is two weeks with premium services available when time really matters. 

We also test chemically protective clothing in order to demonstrate whether it is fit for purpose.
