The goal of our Microbiology Lab is to provide the highest quality analysis and service to our customers. We support a full range of organizations including environmental specialists, engineering and consulting firms, and drinking. We also provide services to government and university researchers.
Our Microbiology Laboratory capabilities include testing for E. coli, Enterococci, Total and Fecal coliforms, and Heterotrophic Plate Counts (HPC). Our methods and procedures for routine testing follow the EPA-approved plate count method, membrane filtration method and pour plate method. All of our analysts have university degrees and/or college diplomas, have received extensive training, and participate in ongoing, industry-leading, quality assurance and training programs.
In addition to microbial analysis, the Microbiology Laboratory also has the capability to perform a wide range of water tests to ensure system optimization or as a pre-screen for compliance. These tests include:
- Collimated beam testing
- Particle size analysis
- UV transmittance measurement
- Turbidity measurement
- pH measurement
- Hardness measuremen
