What is Microbiological Testing? 

Every day, we come into contact with microorganisms. While many are harmless, some can cause severe illness or contaminate sterile environments. Microbial testing is necessary and required by many industries worldwide, where human health is at risk of being adversely affected by biological pathogens, disease-causing bacteria, and other toxins.

Identifying Threats:

Threat Detection - To reduce pollution and disease, it is important to detect threats to your home and workplace. 

Examples of microbial threats are: 

  1. E. Coli
  2. Staphylococcus aureus including MRSA
  3. Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  4. Candida (yeast)
  5. Aspergillus species (mould)
  6. Streptococcus pyogenes (strep throat)
  7. Klebsiella pneumonia
  8. Haemophilus influenza
  9. Neisseria meningitides
  10. Other bacteria, yeast and moulds and parasites


Microbiological analysis is necessary and required to detect contamination and maintain high-quality standards. Healthcare facilities, prisons, grocers and restaurants, laboratories, blood processing centres, and other industries benefit from environmental monitoring, water testing, and other testing methods. Microbial testing is the first line of defence against disease-causing bacteria and toxins and provides support to the public. 


Not only are many industries seeing the benefits of the quality assurance microbial testing they offer, but individuals and households can gain knowledge and improve their health with home testing services. When germs attack a healthy host, our immune systems kick in to protect us, but for people with cancer, cystic fibrosis, or other immune system disorders, microbial pathogens can mean the difference between life and death. People with chronic illnesses or severe allergies can see what's in the air, water and food to remove dangerous pathogens from their homes.

Care givers

The hygienic environment is critical to the health of the patients they serve. To stop the spread of infection, it is important to conduct bacterial testing to decontaminate your environment from disease-causing bacteria. 


Microbial testing can help prevent the spread of dangerous bacteria that can cause serious illness or even death. Food testing, water testing, USP testing, and pharmaceutical testing are just some of the microbial testing on offer to help you keep your home, healthcare facility, or business healthy and free from the contaminants that cause pollutants. 

What is the microbial test? 

If you are unsure whether or not you need a microbial test, the answer is yes. Everyone can benefit from knowing what bacteria and pathogens are in their home and workspace. For those with health concerns or an increased risk of infection, microbial testing is critical.
