More about us:

Hearshaw and Kinnes Analytical Laboratory was established in November 2002. With encouragement and support from the canning industry and exporters of fresh produce, Kevan Hearshaw and Sue Peall established a laboratory to provide a pesticide residue analysis service for samples no longer tested due to the closure of Forensic Chemistry Laboratory, Pesticide Section in the Department of Health.

HKAL has grown from a small staff of only 4 permanent members and limited instrumentation into a thriving and innovative laboratory. In striving to constantly improve the services offered, HKAL moved to expanded premises in Westlake in 2008, with the introduction of state-of-the-art instrumentation and techniques.
