Easter Hours 2019

14 Mar 2019

From Friday 19th April all sites are closed and will return to normal business hours on 23d April. Our Hamilton and Christchurch sites will be open Saturday 20th April 8am to 12pm for sample drop off only.

We are often asked the question, “I need my water tested at home or at the bach to see if it is suitable for drinking, how do I this?” As such, we have two dedicated ‘Do It Yourself’ sampling kits available for this very purpose – the Routine Drinking Water Kit and the Routine Drinking Water Kit including E.Coli.

Last year we announced our new mobile sample app for submission of soil and plant samples, and we have now made this available to a large number of our regular submitters. Since then, we have also developed our digital integration capability and customers can now send expressions of interest to use our new, time-saving API.

Hill Laboratories have been contracted by the Ministry of Primary Industries to investigate the challenges around collecting a representative honey sample for testing. The goal is to help MPI to develop clearly defined sampling protocols for this rapidly growing industry
