Innovative Waste Kaikōura are now offering a dropbox service for Analytix to test any small material samples for asbestos fibres. This will allow any businesses, contractors or community members to bring in their samples and have them couriered to Analytix’s labs in Christchurch where they will be tested.
The results will typically be available 24 hours from the lab receiving the sample. The whole process should be less than 48 hours from IWK receiving your sample.
The total cost for each sample is $69.00 (including courier delivery and GST) and can be paid at the Innovative Waste Kaikōura Resource Recovery Centre’s weigh bridge. Alternatively an account can be opened directly with Analytix
Samples will only be accepted if they arrive in double bagged, sealed ziplock bags and are able to fit in the A4 courier bags.
