Australian Samples

Laboratory Analysis

Laboratory Analysis

Forensic & Industrial Science Ltd own and operate our own laboratory in which samples are analysed for methamphetamine, pseudoephedrine and ephedrine via Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS). We can analyse for these compounds in surface swabs from Australian clients trained to collect them.

Our analysis of methamphetamine in surface swabs via GC-MS is accredited by International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ).

Our standard turnaround time to report results is five working days and shorter turnaround times can be arranged with an additional surcharge. Please contact us for sample delivery instructions.

Methamphetamine Consultancy

Staff at Forensic & Industrial Science Ltd are able to consult on laboratory analysis results for methamphetamine surface samples.  We are able to interpret analytical results and provide decontamination recommendations. 

Obtaining accurate decontamination advice is important as different surface concentrations of methamphetamine require different decontamination actions.  For example, lower levels of methamphetamine may be able to be cleaned while higher concentrations of methamphetamine may require full removal of the surface to meet the criteria set by the Australian Crime Commission or the NZS 8510:2017.
