Sittingbourne Laboratory Extends UKAS Accreditation

ADEY are delighted to confirm that our water testing laboratory at Sittingbourne has completed an Extension to Scope (ETS) to our UKAS Accreditation schedule. The latest ETS, the fourth of 2019, has been undertaken to our chemistry department, including the use of Ion Chromatography (IC), to allow us to claim UKAS accreditation for: • Bicarbonate Alkalinity • Hydroxy Alkalinity • Chloride via IC • Sulphate via IC • Nitrate via IC • Nitrite via IC • Ammonia via IC • Hardness by calculation via ICP OES

The ETS to include these chemistry tests has been undertaken as part of our integration with the recently acquired Alpha Scientific and has been completed ahead of our original target of January 2020.

The addition of the IC into our method portfolio will allow the Sittingbourne laboratory to offer support to the laboratory in Slough in times of peak demand, as and when required as well as adding to the tools at our disposal for undertaking analysis at the Kent Facility.

Upon announcing the ETS, Sittingbourne’s Chemistry Manager, Josh Beany, comments:

"At ADEY we are committed to building and developing a market leading testing laboratory; part of this development will include further UKAS accreditation and development of tests on our current analytical equipment. The introduction of the IC method allows us to offer support to our sister laboratory in Slough as well as increasing the options open to our customers."

The transfer of analysis to the IC method will take place over the next few months and customers will be contacted to discuss the transfer as the method is rolled out over the rest of 2019.
