Our microbiology lab offers microbiology tests for airborne, waterborne or surface samples:
- Air and Surface sample analysis for Fungi (Mold) including identification to species levels for Aspergillus, Stachybotrys and many others
- Surface, Air & Water sample analysis for Ecoli, total coliform
- Surface, Air & Water sample analysis for Bacterial – gram positive, negative heterotrophic plate counts
- Air and Surface sampling for endotoxins
- Air and Surface sampling for Allergens
- Air sampling for Bioaerosols
Criterion’s microbiology laboratories can assist in USP <797> Pharmaceutical Compounding – Sterile Preparations. We can perform Air Quality Testing of the direct compounding area to minimize surface contamination and maintain the appropriate ISO Class air quality.
- Continuous pressure differential monitoring
- Develop appropriate environmental sampling plan and/or perform the environmental sampling plan. Impact samplers are used with growth medium appropriate for bacteria and fungi
If you perform your own sampling, Criterion’s microbiology laboratory can provide you with the sampling equipment and media.
