Our History

UIS Organic Laboratory

UIS Organic Laboratory was formed in 2007 and specialised in Petroleum Contamination analyses using the latest analytical instruments, including advanced gas spectrometers. Some of our tests include Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons, Pesticides, Polychlorinated Biphenyls, Phenols, Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons and water quality tests. In 2022 UIS Organic Laboratory merged with UIS Sediba to form the Environmental Pollution Laboratory.

UIS Sediba Laboratory

UIS Sediba Laboratory (Pty) Ltd was formed in 2012.  The Laboratory first commenced its operations in April 2012, specialising in the determination of VOCs in Green Building Materials.  The laboratory specialised in the measurment of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) that relate to the Indoor Environment Quality.  VOCs can be present as a result of hazardous building materials or other chemicals used in the building.  The most significant source of formaldehyde is, for example, wood products for cabinetry, furniture and sub-flooring.

Methodologies utilised follow standard, internationally-accepted techniques (EPA, ASTM or ISO) or proven and attested in-house hybrids developed for customer specific sample matrices.

In 2022 UIS Sediba merged with UIS Organic Laboratory to form the Environmental Pollution Laboratory.
