In most cases results are available for reporting within 48 hours after receiving the sample material. A digital certificate of analysis will be sent by e-mail, so you have quick and full access to the results. Upon request a hard-copy report can also be sent by post.
Samples may be sent directly to our laboratory (De Hoogjens 36 4254 XW Sleeuwijk), or you can drop them off on working days between 07:30 and 16:00.
After reporting of results samples are stored for a period of 6 months. After this period samples are disposed of as chemical waste. Prolongation of the term of storage or returning of the sample material can be done upon request.
Most of our analyses are performed under ISO 17025 accreditation. Furthermore, with each performed analysis a certified reference material is also tested alongside the sample(s) in order to ensure traceability and quality of the analysis.
LMA uses an advanced LIMS (Laboratorium Information System).
From the time a sample enters our laboratory to the moment when results are reported a specially designed Laboratory Information System is used to track the progress of samples through the lab and minimising the potential for errors. All with the aim of being able to efficiently process samples and produce fast and reliable results.
