UIS Organic laboratory (Pty) was established in 2007.
In 2010, the laboratory relocated to Route 21 Corporate Park, Irene. Our new premises and the addition of automated state-of-the-art analytical equipment allowed us to increase our capabilities and productivity while still providing high quality results. Furthermore, the new premises and increased capabilities created an excellent working environment for our analytical scientists to flourish.
Our staff consist of highly competent analytical chemists with years of experience in the analysis of environmental samples. Many of our analysts are leaders in their respective fields and hold internationally recognized degrees. With strong business ethics, they are committed to providing a personalised client service experience that exceeds customer’s expectations. Our staff also maintains an unrivalled dedication to quality and turnaround time.
Committed to remaining at the forefront of scientific technology, our laboratory is equipped with the latest analytical instrumentation that consistently yields accurate, reliable and verifiable results.

Most of our systems and in-house developed methods are extensively automated, providing the fastest turn-around times in the market.
Trusted practices and procedures have been implemented throughout the company in alignment with global advancements and proven methodologies. We adhere to a strict quality management system outlined in ISO/IEC 17025:2017 guide, and our laboratory is routinely assessed by the South African National Accreditation System (SANAS). Furthermore, we regularly participate in independent proficiency testing schemes to evaluate the quality of results, robustness of our methods and integration of our quality management system. By using only internationally accredited and traceable calibrations standards, we ensure that our results are always accurate, reliable and verifiable.
