Cavendish Laboratories

Cavendish Laboratories was established in 1995 to provide a service that is both professional and competent in the fields of asbestos and water testing, and has held UKAS accreditation for its testing services since its formation. UKAS accreditation is against the international standard ISO/IEC 17025.

Founded on excellence, customers receive high quality, reliable results. The laboratories are accredited for a diverse range of tests, with the ability to provide analysis together with recommendations.

The organisation benefits from a permanent laboratory in Chelmsford, Essex within easy access of the M25 and M11 providing a convenient drop-off point for delivery of water and asbestos samples for testing.

The services available at the permanent laboratory are complimented by a fleet of UKAS accredited mobile laboratories ensuring that asbestos fibre counting can be carried out directly on any site, at any time of day or night, with immediate results and still provide service distinction.
