Microbiology analysis is crucial to the safety and hygiene of your business. The only way to be sure your products and processes are not harbouring bacteria is to organise an environmental microbiology test with SGS. Call our expert laboratories today.

Work surfaces, water, dust and product components can contain bacteria which can contaminate your workplace production processes as well as your final products and assets. Ensuring your drinking water is fit for purpose and free from bacteria is important for public health and also to meet necessary regulatory requirements.

Our environmental analyses services include testing indoor and outdoor environments for the presence of microbiology to determine if there is contamination, where it is originating and the best practice for remediation.
We are dedicated to providing a complete approach to all your environmental analytical needs. So we also provide additional support and services in conjunction with our analytical testing, offering guidance on regulatory and compliance issues while providing the technical support you need to meet your objectives.

All our microbiological testing services are carried out in accordance with national and international standards and will help you to meet regulatory requirements. We undertake testing for:

  • Salmonella
  • Listeria
  • E. coli
  • Staphylococcus
  • Faecal and total coliforms
  • Heterotrophic or total plate count (HPC, TPC)
  • Total plate count/aerobic plate count/standard plate count
  • Yeast and mould

Our high-quality service ensures that samples are safe, hygienic and protected from cross contamination. Results are speedy, with an average turnaround time of seven working days.
Avoid bacterial contamination which can lead to infection outbreaks and damage to your business. Be proactive in ensuring that you are maintaining good working practices and call our expert team today.
