Microbiology Testing & Analysis

As part of our environmental testing, PDC Laboratories offers a wide range of microbiological analyses from routine testing to boil orders. Our microbial analysis is usually performed using culture, biochemical and sometimes optical methods. When indicator organisms levels exceed preset triggers, specific analysis for pathogens may then be undertaken and these can be quickly detected (where suspected) using specific culture methods. Because the analysis is always based on a very small sample taken from a very large volume of water, all methods rely on statistical principles.

We can test any water supply for Total and/or Fecal Coliform, E. Coli, Listeria, and many others.
