Microbiology testing services are a crucial requirement across many industries worldwide where products, processes and human health are at risk of being negatively affected by the presence and breeding of micro-organisms such as specific pathogens, bacteria, yeast and moulds.
Every day, products and materials come into contact with micro-organisms. Although many are harmless, many can cause significant contamination, damage and risk to human health. Some microbes can utilize your product as a food source, breaking the material down into nutrients and irreversibly changing the product whilst other microbes can spoil food, negatively affect production environments, products and infrastructure and water. They can cause severe illness or contaminate sterile environments.
