:: New ALS Geochemistry Sample Preparation Facility in Perth
Recognising that sample preparation capacity can often be the limiting factor in the overall analytical process, ALS has established a new high volume sample preparation facility in the northern Perth suburb of Wangara to address this issue.
With 3,600m2 under roof, this new purposebuilt facility has enabled ALS to double the existing sample preparation processing capacity whilst providing future expansion options. The facility uses the ALS global standard Dust Box extraction system and additional workstations have been incorporated into the design to allow a further 25% increase in capacity without any additional infrastructure requirements.
The size of this facility not only allows sufficient area for operational needs such as sample receipt and sorting-racking, but also provides suitable space for Sample Archive Management, ensuring sample integrity and security is fully maintained even when processing large sample volumes. With Sample Archive Management now consolidated to a single site, accessioning, retrieval and maintaining the condition of samples have all been improved.
Although the sample preparation functions have been separated from the main analytical facility in Malaga, all protocols, practices and procedures have been transferred to the new preparation facility in keeping with ISO 9001 certification. The existing preparation management and staff have all relocated to the new site.
The company is very excited about the new sample preparation facility in Wangara and the opportunities this move presents to better service you, the valued customer. ALS also welcomes the opportunity to provide a comprehensive tour and review of the operation.
The new ALS Perth sample preparation facility is now fully operational and all samples should be consigned to:
