Referred samples

Although there is a practice policy to analyse as much as possible "in house", there are certain tests that have to be sent away to various specialist laboratories around the country, and sometimes abroad. We chose the best laboratory available for each test, depending on their area of expertise, cost and reliability of results. Whenever possible, samples will be part processed before being packed up so they arrive at their destination in good condition.

Due to the postage times and individual testing schedules of each laboratory, the turn around time is often 7-10 days, but every effort is made to ensure an efficient service in the following up and interpretation of these results.
