Advanced science.  Applied technology.


Applied Microbiology

Our microbiology laboratories provide comprehensive functions for probing and controlling organisms in resource production (including oil wells, crop collections and storage, and natural materials harvesting), industrial cultures, and special applications such as BT surrogates dispersions, cultures, and cell counting. Advanced methods and assays allow us to deliver efficient measurements and solutions for industry and government.
