Laboratory Composite Test
The Laboratory Composite Test or LCT for short includes the following:
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 eight (8) individual swabs.
- Children’s rooms (under the age of 16) must be tested – as per Ministry of Health 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.
- The remaining portion of each individual swab is held for 30 days within the laboratory FREE OF CHARGE.
Should additional individual swabs be required for larger homes, there is a cost of $19+gst per additional swab over and above the 8 included with the LCT.
Please note that in the event that a property requires 11 or more samples as part of the LCT, a one off additional fee of $45+gst will be applicable as well as the standard per swab costs. The reason for this is that 8 samples is the maximum number of samples that may be included in a LCT. In other words when 9 or more samples are required as part of the LCT, we will create two separate composite tests for our clients, with the second composite test being billed at a substantially reduced price. This one off additional charge guarantees the accuracy of the Laboratory Composite Test.
The real value of the Active Testing Solutions gold standard approach to methamphetamine testing is that should contamination be found to be present, we do not need to revisit the site for retest purposes as our state of the art laboratories will hold the individual swabs on site free of charge for 30 days.
In comparison to most competitors this means that the cost that our clients face as well as the inconvenience faced is dramatically reduced, as the time taken to get an in depth analysis report is significantly expedited.
Please note that if a Laboratory Composite Test was previously conducted and highlighted the presence of methamphetamine, the individual swabs will then be retested at a price of $89+gst per swab. This saves the need to purchase an Individual Laboratory Test in addition to the Laboratory Composite Test, further saving our clients money.

How It Works?
Active Testing Solutions takes a gold standard approach to Methamphetamine Testing. While many meth testing companies select a lesser version of the tests which is non-compliant with the Ministry of Health guidelines, Active Testing Solutions has developed a pricing strategy which allows our clients to receive the highest possible testing processes available in New Zealand at similar and in some cases a lesser price.
Please note that Active Testing Solutions does not charge additional fees for expedited tests and guarantees a three business day turnaround on all testing.
1. Collect Testing Samples
Our professionally trained testers will visit the property to collect samples.
2. Individual Laboratory Tested Swabs
Each swab is used only once to ensure zero cross contamination.
3. Same Day Shipping of Samples
All samples are shipped directly to our state of the art laboratory partners.
4. Laboratory Composite Test
A small section of each individual sample is combined to assess for contamination.
5. Sample Storage
Each sample is stored FREE OF CHARGE for 30 days in case retesting is required.
6. Meth is found, what now?
As the individual samples are already at the lab, each sample will now be individually tested to ascertain the levels of contamination in each room, without our testers needing to come back to site. Please note that additional charges will apply for the individual testing of each sample.
