Water Sampling and NATA Testing

HydroChem provides technical water sampling and NATA testing to healthcare and high risk sites across Australia. Testing can be delivered via a scheduled monitoring program or in response to a high risk event.

Our experience providing technical field services across geographic locations has honed our planning, project management and implementation skills. Our tailored project plans include exacting standard operating procedures that ensure the quality of our work and the safety of your people, our people and the public.


Legionella Sampling for a large Health Facility


HydroChem’s technical water sampling and NATA testing capabilities include:

  • Legionella sampling of water distribution systems in healthcare and institutional settings
  • Response to high risk events such as an outbreak or repeated “out of spec” results
  • Chemistry measurement and analysis
  • AS 5369 sampling and NATA testing for the reprocessing of reusable medical devices and other devices in health and non-health related facilities

Samples being collected for AS 5369 testing


We rigorously decontaminate our sampling equipment between collections and maintain a stringent calibration schedule to protect the integrity of our sample collection procedures.

Our sampling programs, sampling techniques, and the preservation and handling of our samples are conducted to the relevant Australian Standards.

HydroChem’s in-house laboratory ensures we are always able to deliver accurate results on time. We also provide NATA test work for specific pathogens.
