Routine Hemp Tests:
Hill Laboratories is the first independent laboratory in New Zealand to have been granted Approved Laboratory status by the Ministry of Health. We offer THC testing on Industrial Hemp samples, for compliance with the Misuse of Drugs (Industrial Hemp) Regulations 2006.
Nutritional Panel testing includes getting an understanding of a product's energy, protein, fat (total and saturated), carbohydrate (total and sugars) and sodium. Assessing so many components within multi-component food groups can provide a number of analytical challenges, however, Hill Laboratories team of expert analysts have made the process simple and convenient. Simply complete one of our test submission forms and sample and we will take care of the rest.
Hill Laboratories has extensive experience in the analysis of pesticide residues. We have developed award-winning purification systems that ensure the best possible extraction of contaminants across the most diverse array of sample types available in New Zealand. Our test offering is IANZ accredited and suitable for use in both domestic and export-based situations.
