Microbes are active in the work place for all industrial applications; they can cause human illness, product spoilage and failure. Bacteria can also serve us in a positive form as well with treating environmental contamination and as a method for warding off harmful microbes. Monitoring microbiological activity plays an important part in our everyday lives through testing drinking water, air, food and medical products.
Pace Analytical’s microbiology testing services offers comprehensive testing and extensive experience with a wide variety of sample matrices. We provide testing services for environmental, biotechnology, healthcare and food industries. These services include detection, isolation, identification and confirmation of microbial organisms.
Pace Analytical, as part of their quality assurance plan participates in the EMPAT (Environmental Microbiology Proficiency Analytical Testing) Program. Our microbiologists are members of American Society for Microbiology and the Henrici Society.
