Meth screening

  Our Method of screening is focussed primarily on testing for presence and properly interpreting a positive result.
We have three different scientific methods to test for methamphetamine. All of our samples are taken using the  NIOSH 9111 method. ​
Initial screening is done on the spot and a result is instant, this is a reliable test for overall presence of the drug and whether or not it is within acceptable levels, (MOH guideline set levels, some property owners may adopt a zero tolerance policy) when the results return, we consult with you privately. The privacy act prohibits any sharing of this information. 
Initial screening
from
$150
Field composite test with consult
 $250
Detaied assessment with consult from
$400
In the unfortunate case of a substantially positive result, we would then recommend a detailed assessment conducted by us and tested by our local accredited laboratory. For this we need to test each room at around five test locations to form quantitive samples, these are sent to the lab for analysis 
 They have the tools and knowledge to realize the extent of contamination, to isolate its location and measure the risk.
Adam is suitably qualified in sampling and chain of evidence procedures. The samples are sent to Hill Laboratories or Analytica and results are usually issued in around 3 days. Our process is within the Ministry of health guidelines and is as compliant as one can get with the NZS code 8510;2017,
