Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does it take to analyse a sample in the laboratory?

It normally takes 10 working days to complete an analysis, provided that the laboratory was informed 2 weeks in advance about the delivery of the samples and the matrix/analyte combination is known to the laboratory. Batch sizes of between 8 and 12 samples will also get priority above batch sizes of between 1 and 6 samples.
