We monitor the volume of samples being analysed on a daily basis.The address of the Lab will therefore vary as we direct samples to Labs with the correct capacity to handle our clients samples within our agreed turnaround times. The Address for you to send samples will be shown on the Material Information Sheet emailed to you when you order a service.
The Asbestos Testing Kit is sent out to you by 1st Class Royal Mail and currently the cost is £2.70 In order to keep the weight as low as possible, Kits are sent out in self sealing metallic mailer packaging bags which are slightly larger than A4 size.Not only is it lighter than the original box but it’s more environmentally friendly too.
You should expect to receive your UKAS Lab Result within 24 hours of receipt of your sample(s) at the Lab. We send your UKAS Lab Result Certificate to you by email (to the address you supply to Payal when ordering).
Although the Lab technicians do work into the evening and occasional weekends, we do unfortunately have to exclude our 24 hours promise if it falls over a weekend, bank holiday or other seasonal holiday. We hope you understand.
Yes we are and that’s why we don’t handle your sample ourselves. We avoid any potential conflict of interest by asking you to send your sample(s) directly to the Lab so that you are secure in the knowledge that the sample has been independently analysed by the UKAS Lab in accordance with the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
The type of asbestos present, as confirmed by the UKAS Lab Certificate will determine what happens next. If your Lab Result confirms asbestos is present in the sample you sent in, please contact us to discuss what choices are available to you.
