Our chemists and microbiologists have many years’ experience in the analysis of environmental water quality for different water types including, ground water, surface water, and waste waters.

Wastewater treatment is critical due to diminishing water resources, increasing disposal costs and stricter discharge regulations lowering permissible contaminant levels.

We understand the constraints of wastewater discharge and are able to analyse effluents and wastewater to comply with regulatory authorities consent to discharge, under European and UK legislation.

Using the latest instruments and technology we offer a full range of testing, including BOD, COD, Inorganic salts, Cyanide, Detergents and Organic compounds. Our capabilities also include working with clients in conjunction with the EU Landfill Directive (EEC/1999/31/EC) and the Environmental Agency Landfill Directive, providing a full analytical service, including the monitoring of leachate and landfill gas.

Our Services Include:

  • Mould
  • Bacteria & fungus, incl. Aspergillis, fumigastas
Compost & Digestates (SMS)
Working together with our Defra approved and UKAS accredited partners, we can guide you through the legislation and standards applicable to your activities. We undertake microbiological compost and digestate testing, ensuring you adhere to APB and PAS100 regulations and standards.
Boiler Water Chemistry
Stack Emissions Monitoring
Accurate stack emissions monitoring is essential to ensure compliance with local authority and Environment Agency Permits, the Waste Incineration Directive (WID) and large combustion plant directive. Latis Scientific perform analysis of air samples collected from incineration and combustion processes and also ambient air, including samples from stacks/vents, fugitive dusts, odour samples, traffic pollution and background emissions.
