EMSL Analytical Inc., a leading provider of advanced environmental laboratory services nationwide, received passing Legionella results in its New York City, Westmont, NJ and Houston, TX laboratories as part of the US Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) ELITE pilot proficiency test program for Legionella.

“As part of a program to provide Legionella testing for regional markets nationwide, we are expanding our Legionella capabilities to additional EMSL Microbiology laboratories. Next in the program will be our Atlanta GA, Indianapolis, IN, and South Pasadena, CA Microbiology labs said Diane Miskowski, MPH, Business Development Director.

“This type of proficiency testing is extremely important in our industry. It is the first of its kind in the United States to use known proficiency samples to specifically grade laboratories for correctly identifying, quantifying, and serotyping Legionella samples. We were very pleased to learn from the CDC that we had two additional labs pass the proficiency test” she explained.

EMSL performs Legionella testing for such clients as the Veterans Administration hospital system, water treatment consultants, refineries, multi-national industries, hospitals, rehabilitation and nursing homes, and state and county health departments.
