During this COVID-19 crisis, we will be making changes to testing and services as required in order to minimise the impact of COVID-19 on staff and help reduce the spread, as well as continue to provide you with a high level of service. We will keep you updated with changes as and when required.
We have a Pandemic Contingency Plan in place that will ensure we are able to provide continuity of service, so you can be assured we will be able to support you with our analytical testing services throughout this time of need.
We have been advised by MPI that since we are a part of the national Surveillance Programme keeping New Zealand free from biosecurity risk, as well having accreditation as a Recognised Laboratory Programme (RLP), our laboratories are considered an essential service and will remain open for testing during all COVID-19 Alert levels.
At this time there are no changes to our food testing services.
