laboratory, Lead Testing
Lead is a metal which is toxic at very low levels of exposure. It accumulates in the body, so that regular exposure to even very low quantities may result in harmful levels which can badly damage intellectual and behavioural development of infants and young children. Lead also has a variety of adverse health effects on adults, but children are the most at risk. Products intended for children therefore carry a higher safety risk, particularly as young children are likely to suck or chew items, but many Customers are also choosing to analyse adult jewellery for lead safety limits.
The Laboratory offers a range of UKAS accredited tests to ensure products comply with safety legislation
