Getting samples to the laboratory

Our Laboratories are located in Barking, Essex and ideally situated close to the A13 as well as M11 and M25 motorways. Samples can be dropped off directly at our laboratory anytime between Monday and Friday from 9am and 5:00pm or later with prior arrangement. Out of hours access is available at the laboratory so samples can be dropped off anytime including during weekends.

Our drivers can deliver sample containers and collect samples from your premises in our dedicated, fully equipped fleet of tracked and temperature managed vehicles. Call our team for details of this service.

For the convenience of our customers, we also provide a network of refrigerated drop-off points (see below) at key locations in and around London to help clients get samples back to the laboratory with a minimum of effort while still complying with sample storage regulations and time constraints.

We work closely with various specialist courier companies for those samples that need to be collected from remote or far-away places. Please call our team for further details.

All sample bottles must be labelled correctly and tightly sealed and submitted with a completed ‘Chain Of Custody Record  Form’.

You can download the form here..

Please contact the laboratory for more information and to book sample collection or for drop offs.
