COVID-19 and our Reservoir, Melbourne Lab
Austest Laboratories Reservoir Vic, is classified as an essential service under Stage 4 of the Victorian Government permitted industry list, due to the provision of services supporting the Medical and Defense sectors.
While we are currently experiencing minimal changes to project test or lead times, all our Australian labs operate under a COVID SAFE plan. 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. This is not currently 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 can be arranged via Skype or teleconference.
