Why Test

Many industries have known for decades that in order to deliver consistency then you need to test to ensure a standard or benchmark is constantly being achieved. This is the foundation of any quality control process and the control of standards is now an important element in every industry.

Our testing services are designed to meet the real world needs and be practical in their application to give rapid on-site solutions with the right information, in the right format at the right time. Environmental surveillance testing is the only solution to identify early warning signs that action is required and has proven to be a significant cost effective control.

qPCR Testing – COVID & Legionella

Our award winning Luminultra system is deployed on-site and gives the exact same gold standard of surface testing as used in the clinical testing. Supplied to us by the Canadian world leader LuminUltra our highly trained crews can sample and test any for traces in under 2 hours. Luminultra’s method is compliant with ISO/TS 12869 and meets technical performance criteria under 3rd party validation testing

In this time of uncertainty, imagine knowing whether the COVID virus is present on high-touch surfaces — like screens, desks, steering wheels, seats, fans, bathrooms, etc. — and being able to take immediate action or being able to test a water source on site within hours for the presence of legionella as opposed to the current system of having to wait days for results.

2nd Generation ATP® Testing 

Effective management starts with accurate, fast, high-level information. Our patented 2nd Generation ATP® measurement system represents a major upgrade over other microbiological tools. Based on proven technology our system is 100x more sensitive delivering much more accurate data to help you know what is happening in your system.

Having a true total measurement of all microorganisms contained in your sample in just a few minutes allows you to take action at the earliest possible moment, saving time and money in the battle against microorganisms. Ideal for production or engineering systems who need low to no biological concentration in their process as this reduces CIP times and high volume biocide usage

Equipment Rental

In addition to our testing service we do have testing equipment that is available to hire* on a weekly or monthly basis that is supplied with user training prior to each hire period. This is the ideal solution for testing low volume samples across multiple sites and/or shifts.

Full catalogue of assays and solutions are available to directly purchase from Luminultra (www.luminultra.com) who also provide full technical support. This option is being used by those who want to run additional test to existing protocols or those who want to “try before they buy” the equipment outright.
