“Cansford are great. Sample collectors are always available for appointments at short notice. The quotations are always sent over within minutes of requesting them and the staff are really friendly and helpful. The reports are always easy to understand and very thorough.”

Lucy McGowan

I was incredibly satisfied with the service provided. Obtaining the quotation, booking the testing, and liaising with your team was very efficient and straightforward. The report was produced quickly in the timeframe advised and the level of service overall was great. I will certainly instruct Cansford Labs in the future.
