COVID-19 and Austest Laboratories
Austest Laboratories locations are open and we have implemented a range of strategies to protect our workforce, our customers and our business, noting we have prioritised testing for our medical device and medical packaging clients.
While we are currently experiencing no changes to project test or lead times, we have ceased witness testing and face to face meetings until further notice. Witness testing is where clients for various reasons, attend the lab to either assist or watch testing being performed. As of 23 March, this will not be possible however we have implemented video monitoring of equipment under test, so observation of test samples can be made remotely if required. Meetings to discuss new projects will be made via Skype or teleconference.
