Laboratory testing services

Full Microbial Community Analysis

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)

Get a complete overview of prokaryotic activity in your sample. NGS sequences the 16S rRNA gene, present in all bacteria and archaea, allowing for differentiation and identification of all microbes present. See trends, understand the cause-and-effect relationships of microbes on processes and determine if failures or contamination are due to microbial activity.

Our NGS service is relied on by customers in a variety of industries around the world to help them act with confidence.


Microbial Source Tracking to identify fecal contamination

Fecal bacteria in water sources are a common problem that can pose a serious health risk for the public, as well as economic losses for industries relying on coastal waters. Confirm the origin of fecal pollution and other health risks with our proven MST services.

Identify DNA from multiple animals, including: Humans, dogs, cattle, swine, poultry, horses, ruminants (deer, elk, goats, cows, sheep), and birds.

Assess public health risks

Pathogen testing for viruses and bacteria

Stay on top of threats to human health with our range of testing targets on a variety of sample types.  

Wastewater-based epidemiology: Gain rapid and non-invasive insights into the health of large or targeted populations. Targets include SARS-CoV-2 and associated variants and Monkeypox. Contact us to learn more about available assays. 

Test a range of sample types including surfaces, solids, water and wastewater for pathogenic viruses and bacteria in your samples. Our pathogen testing services provide genetic evidence for the presence of a variety of targets, including: 

  • SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
  • Adenovirus
  • Rotavirus
  • Norovirus
  • Enterovirus
  • Monkeypox
  • Salmonella
  • Campylobacter
  • Bacteroidetes (general)

Manage and protect your assets

Prevent microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC)

Understand threats to your infrastructure from unseen microbial activity that can cause serious equipment degradation and failure, process interruptions, safety hazards, and product quality issues.

Our MIC services can test for a range of targets including:

  • Total archaea
  • Total bacteria
  • Iron-reducing bacteria
  • Corrosive methanogens (micH)
  • Total methanogens
  • Sulfur-oxidizing bacteria
  • Sulfate-reducing bacteria
  • Total prokaryotes

Start your corrosion management plan with an NGS run to perform a full microbial community analysis for a complete picture.
