Hill Laboratories’ makes a difference for customers by helping them increase their productivity, ensure safety, minimise environmental impact, meet regulatory requirements and support their communities’ well-being


We have been asking ourselves a key question: how can we use technology to make sampling and sample submission easier and more accurate for our clients? The result has been the development of our Sample Submission App for Methamphetamine Testing. The app replaces the need for a paper forms and has the functionality to scan methamphetamine wipe tubes.

Hill Laboratories has invested in a quality indicator testing system, which will provide clients with 48 hour results for the majority of tests; the fastest results in the industry.

This year the agricultural soil lab undertook a project to improve processes in our soil-sample preparation area, with dual goals of operational efficiency and staff safety (from dust inhalation).
