DETS is a private limited company, set up in 1999 and independently owned.  Steady expansion, involving two moves to larger premises, has allowed the company to gain a larger market share, and to increase the scope of analyses offered in order to service a wide variety of industry requirements.

These areas include:

  • Environmental testing of soils, waters, gases and waste
  • Geotechnical and building materials
  • Asbestos
  • Agricultural
  • Fuel and biomass
  • On-site services

Almost 100 staff are now employed in our laboratories, and many are well respected within the industry, actively serving on committees and groups such as EIC, AGS, MCERTS, Landfill Regulation, and the Standing Committee of Analysts (see the Management Team section for further details).

DETS are accredited to ISO 17025 and MCERTS for an extensive range of analyses, and are also accredited for sampling.  Samples can be accepted from outside the UK, as a DEFRA import licence is also available.

Mission Statement

Our aim is to excel in all aspects of our business and by doing so provide the highest level of service throughout the industry

DETS offer a wide range of high quality accredited analytical services for the environmental, construction, waste, fuel and engineering industries.  Combining a modern, well equipped laboratory, with highly skilled and dedicated staff, we can ensure an excellent and flexible service to meet the most demanding requirements.

Established in 1999 in Consett, DETS have expanded every year, and developed into one of the most respected analytical laboratories in the UK, by retaining their original clients, and regularly adding new companies. This achievement is due to the DETS philosophy of listening to their clients and forming honest and transparent relationships, providing quality data in agreed timescales, and going that ‘extra mile’ to provide added value.

The experienced scientific and customer service teams work closely with our clients to understand their needs in terms of the technical and commercial demands they face. Timeframes and reporting deadlines are agreed at an early stage to enable clients to meet their own obligations confidently.
