As the UK prepares to leave the EU you may be wondering how this will impact your industry. If you currently avail of contract laboratory services in the UK the effects of a no deal Brexit may have major implications on the ability of UK based laboratories to provide a reliable service.

Transport, Sample Preservation & Holding Times

All ISO 17025:2005 accredited laboratories are required to maintain the temperature of water during transport. to accurately analyse most water matrices to meet IS0 17025 specifications, there is a maximum of 24 hours to reach the laboratory.
