Laboratory services

Our group company operates a large, state-of-the-art laboratory which offers a range of water quality testing services.

If your business has a particular responsibility to ensure public health, you will be aware of the need to remain compliant to regulations through regular water testing, whether looking for bacteria such as Legionella, heavy metals or other toxins.

The laboratory carries out over 750,000 tests a year, and is accredited by UKAS to meet the stringent regulatory requirements of the Drinking Water Inspectorate.

The highly-skilled scientific staff make sure the laboratory operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, carrying out tests for a wide variety of contaminants including the microscopic parasite cryptosporidium and sickness-causing bacteria E.coli. They also check that levels of metals, nutrients, insecticides and pesticides found in water samples are within permitted guidelines.

In addition, the scientists also look at colour, taste and odour, which are all included in the Drinking Water Inspectorate’s quality standards.

Our laboratory works with a range of businesses, local authorities and other organisations, offering comprehensive testing services for water supplies, wastewater, environmental waters, and systems waters.
