We're leading the way

  • RPS has an extensive network of partner laboratories worldwide that enables us to receive testing samples from across the globe. We receive samples not just from our in-house sampling teams but also from other commercial laboratories.
  • The RPS Bedford laboratory was one of the first laboratories in the UK to gain UKAS accreditation for the analysis of PFAS chemicals following the monitoring required at the Buncefield oil terminal. We have been instrumental in providing analytical support during the extensive remediation and clean-up project and subsequent routine monitoring.
  • We like to collaborate with our clients - to design a tailored analytical programme to meet their complex regulatory needs. Leveraging our state-of-the-art instrumentation, we deliver holistic solutions - often to ultra-low limits of detection to suit their most challenging requirements.
  • Our Manchester laboratory was one of the first laboratories in the UK to gain MCERTS accreditation for the analysis of stack emissions. We provide catered solutions to our clients within the Stack market, and we have a team of experts readily available to provide them with niche and specific solutions.
