Samples are prepared and plated on Trypticase Soy Agar (TSA) and subsequently incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to species for the top 3 most prevalent colony types. Quantification is reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
Bacteria surface culture 5-Genus ID
Samples are prepared and plated on Trypticase Soy Agar (TSA) and subsequently incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to genus for the top 5 most prevalent colony types. Quantification is reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
Bacteria surface culture 5-Species ID
Samples are prepared and plated on Trypticase Soy Agar (TSA) and subsequently incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to species for the top 5 most prevalent colony types. Quantification is reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
Bacteria surface culture gram stain and counts
Samples are prepared and plated on Trypticase Soy Agar (TSA) and subsequently incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes enumeration of bacterial colonies using gram stain identification. Results are reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
Bacteria surface culture thermophilic actinomycetes
Analysis includes identification of thermophilic actinobacteria (actinomycetes).  More details...
Endotoxin analysis
Endotoxins are large and complex toxic molecules of polysaccharide, lipid A, and other cell wall components of Gram-negative bacteria. Analysis consists of a quantification of endotoxin amounts in environmental samples employing a Limulus Amebocyte Lysate reaction.  More details...
Fecal Coliform,Total Coliform, E. coli-P/A
In this qualitative analysis, environmental samples such as swabs, water, dust, etc. are grown in culture with metabolic indicators to detect the presence/absence of coliforms. If coliforms are presence, the culture is further analyzed to detect E. coli and fecal coliforms. Fecal coliforms are distinguished by their ability to grow at increased temperatures suggesting pathogenic potential.  More details...
Heterotrophic plate count
Samples are prepped and then incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. An estimation of the live Heterotrophic bacteria present in the sample are reported in cfu/unit.  More details...
Hydrocarbon Degrading Bacteria
Some bacteria have the ability to catalyze the degradation of hydrocarbons found in the environment. Selective media (Bushnell-Haas Agar) specific for detecting hydrocarbon degrading bacteria is used for sample preparation. Prepped samples are then incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Results are reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
Iron bacteria-P/A
Direct microscopic examination of bulk and water samples for the presence or absence of iron bacteria.  More details...
Legionella-CDC method
Legionella samples are plated onto differential and selective agars for quantitative analysis. Legionella colonies are confirmed by various identifying characteristics recommended by the CDC.  More details...
Membrane filtration standard
Analysis of waters and other matrices using the membrane filter methodology described in The Standard Methods for the Examination of Waters and Wastewaters 20th edition sections: 9222B, 9222D, 9222, 9230C, 9215D, 9213E, and 9213B.  More details...
MF-Sewage screen
Samples are prepared according to sample type and analyzed for the indicator organisms, E. coli and members of the Enterococcus group (a subgroup of Streptococcus) associated with fecal and/or sewage contamination. Data are reported semi-quantitatively, indicating the relative amounts of E. coli and Enterococcus species in the sample. This analysis may be coupled with a sewage clearance after cleaning or treatment to help determine the efficacy of the remediation processes.  More details...
MPN-Salmonella
Quantification of Salmonella species using the Most Probable Number (MPN) method. The method is applicable to a wide range of matrices, including soils, waters, sewage, biosolids, bulks, and surfaces. Method references are the Standard Methods for the Examination of Waters and Wastewaters, and the FDA Bacteriological Analytical Methods (BAM)  More details...
MPN-Standard Bacteria
Quantification of bacterial parameters using the Most Probable Number (MPN) method. The method is applicable to a wide range of matrices, including soils, waters, sewage, biosolids, bulks, and surfaces. Method references are the Standard Methods for the Examination of Waters and Wastewaters, and the FDA Bacteriological Analytical Methods (BAM). Soil samples for sewage screen: E.coli and Enterococcus can be analyzed by this method.  More details...
