Biobest Laboratories Ltd

Maintenance - July 2019

To ensure our secure laboratory and equipment are maintained to the highest standard we will be closing to enable our engineers to gain access for servicing. 


This will be done next month, with a timetable as follows:


17 Jul 19 (Wed)          Last tests will be set up                     

19 Jul 19 (Fri)             Tests from 17 Jul 19 will be read and reported.


19 Jul 19 – 24 Jul 19    No testing


26 Jul 19 (Fri)             Normal testing resumes (Subject to engineer service sign off).

29 Jul 19 (Mon)           First results will be reported.


This means that for the approximate period of five days, no rabies results will be available.  As with previous shutdowns we will clear the backlog as quickly as possible to enable your results to get back to you within our usual normal published time-scales.


Express Testing will not be available between 19 Jul 19 and 24 Jul 19 as the unit is closed and no tests can be set up, regardless of their urgency.  As mentioned above normal testing will resume on Fri 26 Jul 19 subject to engineer service sign off.


If you are aware that any clients require certificates before 17 Jul 19 we would encourage you to send in samples as soon as possible. This will avoid client disappointment where we cannot put the sample on test.


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information regarding the shutdown.
