Element Provides Remote Testing Options

Trust Element to keep your testing on-time during the COVID-19 crisis.

As a global business whose number one value is safety, Element has taken steps to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 by operating under a business continuity plan to keep our clients and our colleagues safe. We continue to monitor this fluid and difficult situation, reviewing all advice from the World Health Organization (WHO), national governments, and other authorities. 

Remote testing options at Element

Unattended Testing
Element has established operating procedures to ensure the safe handling of all samples received from high-risk countries and regions. We are still accepting your materials, products, and samples to undergo unattended testing at our laboratories as usual, via drop-off or shipping for equipment receipt. 

Remote Witness Testing
Remote witness testing allows you to observe your testing as it is performed via secure video conferencing without the requirement of attending in person at the test facility.

On-site testing is still available

We recommend choosing either remote witness testing or unattended testing when possible, but we are aware that attended testing is sometimes necessary. In these cases, we have taken additional precautions to keep you and our experts safe from exposure and safe from infection of COVID-19. This includes following all World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines for personal hygiene, and cleaning and disinfecting environments. 

Element is here to help 

We are available to answer any questions you may have about testing and test schedules. We will provide guidance on any impact to completion of testing, inspection, and certification as needed. 

For immediate assistance, please contact your usual Element lab contacts or speak to one of our Engaged Experts today.
