The National Laboratory Service (NLS) to appear at Sustainability Live 2009
7 April 2009, News release from National Laboratory Service
The National Laboratory Service (NLS) is stepping up its presence at Sustainability Live 2009.
The NLS will use the exhibition - which has become the biggest event in its calendar - to showcase its ability for Innovation and secure its place in the environmental testing and analysis market as the customer service delivery alternative to the industry's other main players.
The NLS has invested in a brand new stand design for the exhibition, running in line with its recently re-launched website (www.natlabs.co.uk), in order to demonstrate its commercial aspirations. In the last financial year the NLS delivered a commercial income growth of 65 per cent, with consistently more than 85 per cent of all completed analytical reports delivered to customers on or before their promised due date.
With an unrivalled reputation for scientific excellence, which includes a Centre for Soils and Contaminated Land Analysis, the NLS has become a leading light in research and development - providing a comprehensive range of robust and reliable solutions. All of this is supported by a dedicated customer service team trained to the highest standards in customer care.
Sustainability Live will enable the NLS to present its Hi-tech industry-leading solutions, created to tackle environmental problems through bespoke method development - rather than through standard factory sampling testing environments.
Following a recent consultation with customers, the NLS has transformed the way it reports its Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) results -resulting in a management decision tool rather than an analytical list, allowing for easy comparison to waste threshold values.
The NLS has developed and recently launched a new laboratory method to pinpoint sources of pollution - Microbial Source Tracking (MST). So far MST has been used to maintain safer bathing waters and is also set to play a major role in identifying problems of sewerage, septic tank and cesspit leakage, or tracking down sources of surface water and private drinking water supply contamination.
In its quest to support new innovations, the NLS is sponsoring the Award for Environmental Technology at the Sustainability Live Awards Dinner, on Tuesday, May 19.
The NLS will be at Stand R72 and E79 throughout Sustainability Live, from Tuesday, May 19 until Thursday, May 21.
