As well as working in our laboratories, we can conduct tests in the field or at clients’ premises.
If you’re not sure what tests you need, or if you would like some help to interpret a particular standard, please contact us. Our consultants will be happy to discuss your requirements and offer advice. We can also work with you to devise test procedures that meet your needs if none currently exist.
