The microbiological analysis commonly performed on aqueous, food and beverage matrices is aimed at investigating the presence of possible bacterial species which are indicative of pollution and carriers of medical problems if ingested by humans.
The most requested analyzes depend on the reference matrix: there are the microbiological parameters for potability, the determination of E. Coli in waste water, Legionella in condensate water and many other parameters in relation to the origin and type of the sample.
Each analytical profile is defined on the basis of the origin and matrix of the sample and is defined directly between the Customer and the Laboratory. Further confirmation parameters can be made later.
For the classic parameters of water analysis, see the Water section.
Requests for offers, analyzes and sampling plans can be made either by e-mail, by telephone or by fax. All written requests (e-mail and fax) must contain the following data: name and surname, company of reference and subject of your request.
Samples intended for microbiological analysis should be taken and stored in sterile containers and kept in the refrigerator (< 4°C) until delivery to the laboratory. For further information contact the Coordinator of the Microbiological Sector.
Each sample delivered to the laboratory must be accompanied by the accompanying document, without which the Laboratory will not proceed with the acceptance of the sample.
This document can be completed at the time of delivery of the sample to the Laboratory.
