We provide a large variety of analysis that supports occupational hygienists, consultants and companies that are involved in workplace monitoring for hazardous substances, asbestos surveying, site investigations, environmental monitoring and product quality assurance.

We hold UKAS accreditation for various types of analysis, please follow this link to see our accreditation.

Our service includes expert advice on sample collection and assistance in determining what to measure. Our standard turn-around time is ten working days. We are also able to offer a premium turnaround on some analysis when time really matters.
