Our Services 

Screen Test Options

Composite Lab Test

This is a composite test that is sent to the laboratory which provides a numerical level of the total possible contamination of all the samples taken. The results are received from the lab 2 days later. The results provide an average contamination level across all samples and a Theoretical Maximum Level. If the result is 1.5µg or below, the property will be deemed safe under the current New Zealand NZS8510:2017 standard. If the result is above 1.5µg you will need to have each individual sample tested by the lab to see where the levels are high and requiring remediation.  Please see Comprehensive Lab Testing below for more information. 

   1-5  Patches $179 + GST

  6-10 Patches $249 + GST

11-20 Patches $349 + GST

Urgency fee $30 + GST

Mobile Lab Test

On-the-spot non-validated option under NZS8510:2017.

 

This gives a detected / not detected answer as to whether methamphetamine is present in the tested areas. This option is not currently validated under the current standard but it gives you an on-the-spot answer to whether Meth is detected or not-detected in the property. Patches are swabbed throughout the property and then combined and tested with our Draeger DT5000 mobile lab on-site. The mobile lab is highly accurate and will detect meth above a level of 0.125µg. If there is no meth detected it will show negative and your report will be provided to that effect. If the result is positive, lab testing is the next recommended step. See lab testing options.

    1-5 Patches $179 + GST

  6-10 Patches $249 + GST

11-20 Patches $349 + GST

Comprehensive Lab Tests 

If you get a positive result from a screen test you need to get Comprehensive Lab Testing done to establish the level of contamination in each area tested. One sample must be taken in each room of the property as per the current New Zealand NZS8510:2017 standard. Each sample taken is then put in it's own individually coded vile and collectively they are couriered to the lab for individual testing.  Under the current standard, we are also required to include a ‘field blank’ to ensure the process is valid. 

Individual Lab Test $99 + GST each

Urgency fee $30 + GST

The Testing Process

This is how Meth Testing is done.

I have used MethTec on numerous occasions for my clients and personally for the recent purchase of a rental property. I have found MethTec to be highly efficient, incredibly knowledgeable in an area where professional advice and expertise is paramount. I would be happy to recommend MethTec and wish them all the best for the year ahead.
