Screening Assessment Test
We have developed New Zealand’s highest level baseline testing which is fully compliant with the NZS 8510 – the newly released standard.
We use a Laboratory Composite Test to conduct our initial screening assessment. This industry leading meth test is used to ascertain whether methamphetamine contamination is present on site at levels above the NZS 8510 recommendations.
Please note that many meth testing companies will combine swabs into a single vial on site. This significantly increases the costs that client’s will face in the event that contamination is found on site. Call us now to find out more.
- Up to ten (10) individual swabs
- Should additional samples be required, an additional cost may apply.
- All rooms (including hallways) must be tested – as per NZS 8510 guidelines.
- The individual swabs are placed into individual vials and are sent to our state of the art laboratory partners.
- A small portion of each swab will be combined by a fully trained and qualified lab technician in the laboratory in order to ensure zero cross contamination between the individual swabs.
- The combined swab is tested for methamphetamine which produces a composite result.
- The remaining portion of each individual swab is held for 30 days within the laboratory FREE OF CHARGE.
So you have had a Screening Assessment Test completed and it has indicated that there is methamphetamine contamination on site at a level which could be greater than the NZS 8510 recommendations. Step one – don’t panic! Remember that a composite result is the average level of contamination present throughout the property. So it is possible that there is no single area that has contamination above the NZS 8510 recommended levels. But we need to find out. Our laboratory partners are still holding the samples which we have taken from your property and we will now have those samples individually tested. This will give us the exact contamination levels present at each sample area.
