Our process

By investing in the best possible technologies and processes, we’re helping our clients deliver higher quality patient outcomes.


Our customized robotic plating for colony counts and bacteria and endotoxins all but eliminates sample contamination and errors. After every positive count is digitally read, a microbiologist manually reviews every positive plate to ensure the count is correct.
