    Sampling Kits and Analysis

    COVID-19 update: The laboratory is now open and we are able to receive samples. We are operating on a reduced capacity and therefore we have temporarily suspended our target turnaround times. Analysis will be completed as soon as it can be dependent on circumstances. We will review this at the beginning of July with the aim to reinstate turnaround times as a priority. Should you need to get in touch, the preferred means of contact is currently email at
