Unwanted microbial contamination
Every living system runs the risks of getting invaded by unwanted microbes. These invaders (pathogens) can cause a lot of problems. We can help you by detecting these pathogens. Our service is unique because we are not only able to detect pathogens in water, but also in gas, soil and air. Thanks to DNA-RNA analyses, we are independent of the culturability of the pathogens. This allows us a much broader diagnosis and gives more insight. NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) enables us to look beyond the standard pathogens.
We will send you all the necessary sampling material and a protocol within one working day. Use the kit to take your own samples and conserve them. Cooling the samples is not necessary.
Send the sampling kit back (uncooled) and you will receive the analysis report by e-mail within ten working days. In case of urgency we can report within 48 hours (urgency fee applicable).
If you do not want to perform sampling yourself, we will do it for you.
