Our Verification Team members have experience conducting airborne and surface sampling for the presence of endotoxins and mycotoxins in hospital surgical suites, hospital laboratories and patient areas.

We routinely conduct sampling for the presence of airborne bacteria and fungi in public buildings, schools, universities and colleges, and research laboratories.

We have performed both viable and nonviable fungal spore trap analyses in schools, banks, and public buildings and have conducted indoor air and potable water sampling for Legionella and other organisms.

We use the latest verification sampling methods and on-site monitoring instruments to rapidly verify COVID-19 sampling efforts in real time.  These protocols have been designed to comply with FDA, CDC and WHO guidelines and requirements.  Our team employs a tiered verification approach to assess the presence of and/or confirm that your facility decontamination and cleaning is effective at removing COVID-19 from facility surfaces.

For clean rooms, hospitals and more sensitive facilities, we provide additional laboratory verification to provide further assurance regarding cleaning success.
