Laboratory Analysis of Gases

SOCOTEC's extensive UKAS accredited laboratory services can analyse gas samples for a wide range of gases as part of any comprehensive workplace or environmental survey or measurement programme.

We are able to supply suitable containers to assist in the sampling process or we can analyse direct from our client’s sample containers. In addition we have a nationwide team of samplers who are trained to carry out gas sampling and measurement should this be more suitable to our client’s requirements.
