Exova, the worldwide testing and advisory business will be hosting an open day for the Water Treatment and Facilities Management Industries at its new state of the art microbiological and chemical water testing laboratory in Camberley, Surrey on 16 September 2010.

UKAS accredited, Exova’s new Camberley facility is the only water testing laboratory located outside ofLondonto hold ISO 17025 and to be accredited by the Legionella Control Association.

The new and purpose built facility, based at the J4 development off Doman Road, will offer microbiological and chemical water testing for businesses based in London and the South East of England and is an expansion to the existing water testing service already offered by Exova in Camberley. The site will be accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to existing clients for them to drop samples off within their client specific secure storage location. Exova also offers water testing at its network of laboratories throughout the UK at Birmingham, Grimsby, Clydebank and Runcorn.

At the event guests will also be able to view a demonstration of Exova Advantage, the state of the art web-based results package offered from Exova. Advantage allows clients to register samples, progress results, store invoices and trend past data.

The expansion at Camberley is as a result of Exova’s innovative idea to open a network of secure ‘drop off points’ across the United Kingdom. Instead of having to use unreliable couriers or waste time with transportation, samples can simply be left at any of Exova’s Southern drop off points at Crayford, Battersea, Eastleigh, Slough, Bristol and South Mimms. These locations are checked daily by Igloo Thermo Logistics, Exova’s courier team, which delivers the samples into the Camberley laboratory for analysis.

Nick Barsby, Project Manager Water at Exova said:

“Exova is recognised within the Water Hygiene industry as a leading provider of water testing and as a result, business is expanding fast. This new 4,500 sq ft site will allow us to incorporate a facility able to handle over 3,000 samples a week with dedicated labs for both micro and chemical testing of water.

“The addition of chemical analysis at Camberley will allow Exova to report some chemical parameters in a shorter time frame than previously possible, with some analytes being available for reporting within 24 hours of sample receipt”.
