Exova opens state of the art south east laboratory
16 December 2010, News release from Exova
The Deputy Mayor of Surrey Heath Borough Council, Councillor Tim Dodds, officially opened the Exova Camberley water laboratory alongside Sean Kerr and Mark Proctor on Thursday 16th September.
Guests experienced a demonstration of Exova Advantage, the state of the art web-based results package offered from Exova. Attendees were also given a tour of the new facility and were introduced to the Exova laboratory team.
The new and purpose built facility, based at the J4 development off Doman Road, offers microbiological and chemical water testing for businesses based in London and the South East of England and is an expansion to the existing water testing service already offered by Exova in Camberley.
The site is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to existing clients for them to drop samples off within their client specific secure storage location. Exova also offers water testing at its network of laboratories throughout the UK at Birmingham, Grimsby, Clydebank and Runcorn.
The expansion at Camberley is as a result of Exova's innovative idea to open a network of secure 'drop off points' across the United Kingdom. Instead of having to use unreliable couriers or waste time with transportation, samples can simply be left at any of Exova's Southern drop off points at Crayford, Battersea, Eastleigh, Slough, Bristol and South Mimms.
These locations are checked daily by Igloo Thermo Logistics, Exova's courier team, which delivers the samples into the Camberley laboratory for analysis.
Alison Hughes, Business Development Manager said: "Exova is recognised within the Water Hygiene industry as a leading provider of water testing and as a result, business is expanding fast.
This new 4,500 sq ft site will allow us to incorporate a facility able to handle over 3,000 samples a week with dedicated labs for both micro and chemical testing of water.
"The addition of chemical analysis at Camberley will allow Exova to report some chemical parameters in a shorter time frame than previously possible, with some analytes being available for reporting within 24 hours of sample receipt".
