ADEY Granted UKAS Extension to Scope Turbidty & Metals

Fast on the back of being granted UKAS accreditation for Microbiology and Legionella testing, including MALDI-ToF confirmations, ADEY are delighted to announce that we have had a further extension to our ISO 17025 UKAS schedule (8901) to increase our scope for Turbidity and Total Metals testing. By using state of the art ICP-OES instruments ADEY can now offer a broader scope of Total Metals testing for Zinc and Aluminium.

By extending our scope to now include Turbidity, Total Zinc and Total Aluminium we are now in a unique position to hold UKAS accreditation for the vast majority of the BSRIA suite as well as offering a full Microbiology testing offering with MALDI-ToF confirmations. Our rapid turnaround times are what really set ADEY apart from our competitors, with all Chemistry completed in three working days, fully confirmed Legionella results in 10 calendar days and interim reads available for our in-house 21-day SRB testing.

After the extension to scope for Total Metals was confirmed by UKAS, Cameron Hardie, ADEY’s Laboratory Manager at the Kent Science Park in Sittingbourne, comments:

"The completion of metals accreditation is the final piece in our original development schedule for 2018. By completing this three months ahead of schedule we are confident that ADEY are ideally placed to support all Water Hygiene and Water Treatment businesses in the South East of England."

With 11 drop-off points around the South East to facilitate the transport of samples to the laboratory, ADEY are your ideal partner for both Chemical and Microbiological testing with rapid reporting and full Microbiological speciation via MALDI-ToF. To further enhance our market standing ADEY are also members of BSRIA, the CSCA and the Legionella Control Association.
