A laboratory composite is a meth testing technique which can be used in both screening assessments and post-decontamination testing. A lab composite is when multiple individual (discrete) samples or field composites are combined in the lab to make one or more new samples. These lab composites are then tested instead of each individual sample which saves money.

The original samples are retained by the lab and can be tested individually if the lab composite shows that this might be necessary.
