Protecting public health and the environment
We offer Australia's greatest range of NATA accredited field sampling and water quality tests associated with the chemistry, microbiology, biology and ecology of waters, wastewater, sediment and sludge.
Our water quality testing services span the entire water cycle, from catchment, to drinking water at the tap, to wastewater, reuse and alternative sources.
Our water quality testing services have:
- high sensitivity with lower limits of detection
- fast turnaround times
- rapid response services for health-related incidents
Routine and emergency laboratory testing and analysis services are delivered by our two state-of-the-art laboratories in Melbourne and Adelaide.
As part of our reporting processes, we pre-set alert parameters for water testing in line with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines 2011 (ADWG), which means we can alert you to potential water quality issues where preliminary reporting indicates analytical parameters which do not meet the ADWG 2011.
Microbiological water quality tests
NATA accredited microbiological testing services for the analysis of bacteriological quality of water, wastewater and soils.
Organic chemistry testing services
NATA accredited testing for algal toxins, disinfection byproducts, faecal sterols, volatile organic compounds, and pesticides.
Inorganic chemistry testing services
NATA accredited testing services for cations, anions, nutrients, and heavy metals that pose a risk to public health and the environment.
NATA accredited sampling and analysis services for algae and macroinvertebrates, with a focus on 'problem' species.
AWQC DNA tests are key to understanding water contamination risks, resolving water quality issues, and preventing waterborne disease outbreaks.
Bore water testing
NATA accredited bore water sampling and testing services for pathogenic microbes and heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants.
NATA accredited rainwater sampling and testing services for pathogenic microbes and other contaminants.
Plumbing contamination tests
NATA accredited sampling and testing services for contaminants entering drinking water through plumbing.
