In theory anyone can fill a bottle and send it away to a laboratory, however the correct taking of samples is paramount foe the result to be meaningful and in a compliance sense for them to be valid.
Choosing the best representative numbers and points to sample from, needs to be carried out by an expert, to avoid wasting money and resources on meaningless results.
Test results which arrive back without the correct procedures having been followed and/or without the full context of the system sampled, can result in unnecessary panic and escalation.
For a full and professional expert service please contact Zeta and one of our consultants will discuss your needs in detail and then be able to organise the sampling following the correct protocols and arrange for testing at a UKAS accredited laboratory.
