iPUR tech can use their technical resources to undertake development and site investigation studies. We have recently completed a survey of fast response bacteria testing methods. We use SPEEDY BREEDY to give bacteria level results in 1 hour.
Isolation and identification of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Samples are plated on non-selective, nutrient agar to cultivate viable bacteria. Bacterial isolates are screened for Staphylococcus aureus. Any suspect S. aureus colonies are further isolated and analyzed for antibiotic resistance to methicillin.
Multiple Tube Fermentation (MTF) analysis of liquids and solids for the presence and enumeration of Sulfate Reducing Bacteria. Sulfate Reducing Bacteria can be found in many waters and are responsible for indirect anaerobic corrosion of iron under the proper conditions.
Mold testing services include analysis of non-viable air samples (Air-O-Cell, VersaTrap, Micro 5, cyclex D, LARO-100, pcm cassettes), viable air samples (RCS, Andersen, etc), direct microscopic and culture analyses of bulk samples (drywall, wallpaper, pieces of carpets, insulation material, dust, wood and other matrices), tape-lift and swab or ...
Endotoxins are large and complex toxic molecules of polysaccharide, lipid A, and other cell wall components of Gram-negative bacteria. Analysis consists of a quantification of endotoxin amounts in environmental samples employing a Limulus Amebocyte Lysate reaction.
Consults with you on the most appropriate test methods to use for your samples, or what samples may be appropriate for a given investigation. Inappropriate test methods or samples cost more money and give results that may be difficult to interpret or defend and subsequently a waste of resources. In most cases, simple tests for mold and bacteria ...
Quantification of Salmonella species using the Most Probable Number (MPN) method. The method is applicable to a wide range of matrices, including soils, waters, sewage, biosolids, bulks, and surfaces. Method references are the Standard Methods for the Examination of Waters and Wastewaters, and the FDA Bacteriological Analytical Methods (BAM).
