Soil, Water, Food and Site Testing Lab

Our testing lab provide a wide range of soil, water and food testing services to farmers, industry owners, and nurseries across Melbourne, Victoria.


Drinking Water Testing

Drinking water, including tap water, is generally deemed safe. But it might not always be entirely fit for its intended purpose. It can potentially harbour chemical or biological contaminants that lead to health concerns.


Melbourne Soil Testing

Healthy soil equals healthy plants. Identification of soil nutrients helps to improve productivity and optimise the use of fertiliser. Soil tests also indicate appropriate rates for different soils and crops.


Site and Soil Contamination Testing

Site contamination testing detects the presence of harmful substances like chemicals or microorganisms on or beneath the surface, jeopardising both human health and the environment.


Food Contamination Testing

Food contamination occurs when unwanted substances enter food, leading to health issues with minor to severe consequences. Food safety is a paramount concern, with various types of contamination posing risks.


Food Nutrition Testing

Using a food testing service, you can determine the energy, protein, fat, carbohydrate, sugar, and sodium content of packaged food, along with the nutritional value and information.


Plant Tissue Testing

Conducting a precise plant tissue test, also known as a leaf test, provides valuable insights into nutrient status and availability. It also pinpoints nutrient deficiencies.


Pool Water Testing

We provide precise and reliable pool water testing to ensure a safe and healthy swimming experience. Using advanced equipment, we measure key parameters such as pH, chlorine, bromine, alkalinity, and calcium hardness.


Soil Amendment Testing

We analyzes lime, dolomite, and gypsum samples for calcium, magnesium, and sulfur content. For gypsum, we calculate purity based on sulfur content, helping you determine the quality and optimal application rate.
