Environmental Sampling

We carry out on-site microbiological environmental sampling of air, surfaces and water to identify sources of contamination.

We carry out Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Testing as a means of measuring the levels of contamination in Air, Water, and Surfaces.

We offer this service to Healthcare providers in the form of a Clinical Study, and also to Manufacturers and in Industrial settings as a routine service.

This service typically includes an initial visit to your setting to determine the sampling points and develop a custom test plan.

Afterwards, we go on-site to take care of the sampling process and then return the samples to Test Labs for analysis of the environment.

Environmental Monitoring

We carry out Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Testing of surfaces, water and air.

Mould survey

We provide mould survey services to industry and residential properties

The mould survey service will provide laboratory confirmation with regards to the presence of mould growth within properties.

Both surface and air sampling will be available. Air sampling can be useful in determining the likelihood of mould spore inhalation. The reports will provide definitive evidence of mould growth which a standard visual inspection cannot.

As part of the Microbiological Environmental Monitoring Service, Test Labs will collect environmental samples from the site, transport samples to the laboratory for processing and analysis.

The service will include the following stages:

1. On site sample collection and transport to Test Labs accredited and certified laboratory (Peterborough, UK)

2. Sample processing at Test Labs (Peterborough, UK)

3. Analysis and Reporting: after finishing the processing of the samples, data will be collected, analysed and presented in a QC checked and signed report.

At Test Labs, we offer a state-of-the-art calibration service, so you can ensure that your Gas Detectors are always calibrated to a high level of accuracy.

We perform Hydrogen Peroxide detector calibration following a method that was developed by Test Labs to increase the reliability, accuracy, and reproducibility of Hydrogen Peroxide sensor calibration at 1 ppm. A vapour at around 1 ppm was created and the concentration was confirmed by performing a titration, that is a technique where a solution of known concentration is used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution. This vapour produced was then used to calibrate Hydrogen Peroxide sensors and correct their readings to the exact titration concentration.

The calibration is performed to ISO 9001:2015 within our UKAS accredited laboratory (22215).

Gas Detector Calibration

We calibrate gas detectors in our state-of-the art laboratory using validated method and verified reference gases
