Laboratory Composite

This sampling is useful if you have a high suspicion of meth use in the property but don't want to go straight to the detailed assessment. It can potentially save you significant time and cost in the long run.

One sample is taken in each room of the property. Each sample is put in an individual test tube and sent to the laboratory over night. Once the samples reach the laboratory, they will combine extracts from up to five samples to provide you with a result for each batch. The results you receive will be the AVERAGE level of contamination in each batch. If any batch returns a result which could exceed the maximum acceptable level  as set out by the NZ Standard for testing and decontamination of methamphetamine-contaminated properties (NZS 8510:2017), all samples in that batch can be re-run the following day to give you a result for each individual area, reducing the number of additional samples required in the Detailed Assessment.
