Microbial contaminants pose risk to the quality and safety of the products we use every day. To protect consumers and patients and meet regulatory requirements, the manufacturers of medical equipment as well as biotech, nutraceutical, personal care and cosmetic products must perform stringent screening to first detect and then identify environmental isolates in their manufacturing processes. Over the last 20 years, our laboratory has tested and identified more microorganisms than any other company or service laboratory, which has allowed us to develop and refine validated, proprietary libraries and methods of interpretation that are unrivaled in the industry.
