Environmental Solutions

Symbio Laboratories has one of the broadest range of testing capabilities for the environmental testing market, making us the first choice for many environmental consultants, water authorities and wastewater treatment companies.

Our laboratories are equipped with the most advanced analytical instrumentation available to ensure that detection limits meet customer and regulatory requirements.

Regular Testing & Surveillance

Symbio Laboratories conducts a wide array of tests on water, soil, effluent, surfaces and air to ensure that the health of the immediate and wider environment is not compromised as a result of your production activities.

Compliance with requirements set by the Environmental Protection Authority, relevant Occupational Health and Safety bodies, as well as individual food safety plans, demands constant surveillance of the many by-products of agricultural and food manufacturer businesses.

Symbio Laboratories conducts regular testing for a range of chemical, residue and microbiological tests relating to soil, plant material, water testing, air quality, effluent, and surfaces.

Symbio Service and Assistance

Where appropriate, we can provide trained staff to take the samples for you – a valuable service when third party surveillance is required. For customers outside our sampling area, kits and full instructions can be supplied to simplify the process of taking a representative sample and submitting for analysis.

We offer a wide range of Environmental testing services for businesses and Government bodies, and have consolidated our capabilities into the industries and concerns we cater to most.
