The laboratory is co-located on our existing ALS Minerals site in Bohle and will work hand in hand with the existing Environmental Service Office staff Joy Morgan and Anthea Alexandrou.
The laboratory has been established to provide a local service to clients in the North Queensland region and will primarily analyse water samples requiring short holding time Inorganic Chemistry and microbiological parameters. Other parameters will be tested at ALS Environmental’s major laboratory in Brisbane and managed via the Townsville Environmental Service Office. ALS Townsville is now NATA Accredited for key microbiological parameters. Accreditation for select Chemistry tests is imminent. The laboratory will provide clients with the same high standard of quality they have come to expect from ALS, whilst enhancing service delivery and short holding time compliance. The laboratory will also be able to provide local results up to a day earlier when client needs warrant this level of service.
The ALS laboratory information management system (LIMS) will consolidate data from both laboratories into a single report.
Zachary Chataway has relocated from the Brisbane laboratory to manage the new Townsville facility. Zach has previous experience managing regional Offices in QLD and is well equipped to assist North QLD clients. Zach has a BAppSc (Microbiology) from QUT and >10 years’ experience in Microbiological & Environmental laboratory operations.
