• Analyze bacteria from air, surface, and bulk samples.
  • Identify bacterial isolates to genus and species.
  • Pathogen Environmental Monitoring (PEM) available (e.g. MRSA, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Acinetobacter, Salmonella, Listeria, etc.).
  • Rapid endotoxin testing (e.g. hemodialysis, water and water systems, filter industry, and final product not requiring FDA-licensed LAL).
