We are pleased to advise you of an important new service that is going live in our Hamilton laboratory, one that we are very proud of and excited about. We are partnering with the Waikato DHB to provide additional testing capacity to their laboratory in Hamilton for SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) in nasopharyngeal swabs.
Hill Laboratories was granted ‘Approved Laboratory’ status in March this year by the Ministry of Health (MoH) and can now offer THC testing on industrial hemp samples. We are the first privately owned laboratory in New Zealand to obtain accreditation for our method and be granted the ‘Approved Laboratory’ status.
