Laboratory Services

Adelaide Exposure Science and Health offers a range of laboratory services on a fee for service basis.

Our research scientists provide quality lab services

Our laboratory is equipped with modern scientific equipment and analytical instrumentation, and we pride ourselves on providing quality service to our clients. 

All of our laboratory staff are qualified research scientists and are able to discuss individual needs with each of our clients, rather than following a standard ‘one size fits all’ approach. Given the research and development background of our staff we can expand upon our standard services and welcome enquiries relating to more complex and challenging analyses. 

Our dedicated experts specialise in providing tailored services centred on enhancing safety and performance across industries. Contact us directly to discuss your specific laboratory analysis needs. 

Standard laboratory services we offer include:
