There are number of chemicals and pollutants are present in the air we breathe. Air testing is the process of testing and analyzing the air quality of the environment. The reason why testing air quality is so essential is that it directly affects the human health.

Air is important in microbiology because it provides a medium for transfer of microorganisms that has a much wider than water. These microorganisms and pollutants make the air impure. Impure quality of air is very dangerous to human health and can cause many diseases.

In order to check the types and level of pollutants present in the air, air testing is conducted so that an effective method can be selected for getting a pure quality of air in the environment.

Some of the pollutants present in the air are nitrogen dioxide, fungus, bacteria, mold, yeast, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, volatile compounds and pesticides in air.

CLEANING VALIDATION:

  • Food manufacturing & processing facilities are required to monitor and validate their sanitation procedures by performing environmental testing after cleaning.

  • We can screen for Aerobic plate count (APC), Coliforms, E. Coli and Enterobacteriaceae, etc.

  • Our screening system can reveal the degree of cleanness instantly.

PATHOGEN SCREENING:

  • Each swab is screened for the 3 major pathogens (E.coli 0157:H7, Listeria spp., and Salmonella spp.)  along with other species if needed.

  • Our pathogen screening system is a never-miss guaranteed technology which is 1,000 times more sensitive than any other technology out there in the market.
