Boston, MA, November 30th, 2015
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Boston laboratory has received CDC ELITE certification for Legionella testing. EMSL now has 10 CDC ELITE labs, which is more than any other United States laboratory.
“With the increased demand for regional Legionella testing locations across the country, we are working to increase the number of EMSL labs within the program,” said Diane Miskowski, MPH, Legionella Program Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “The recent passage of ASHRAE 188 for preventing legionellosis in building water systems, along with the outbreaks in cities like New York have stressed the importance of having a Legionella Water Safety Plan and validating that plan by doing Legionella testing. EMSL has several labs in the queue for Legionella certification in 2016.”
Along with CDC ELITE certification, EMSL Boston offers testing services for asbestos, indoor air quality (IAQ) and microbiology. EMSL Boston is accredited by AIHA EMLAP, AIHA IHLAP, AIHA EMPAT for Fungi and AIHA IHPAT for Asbestos.
EMSL now offers a Legionella Pocket Guide to provide information about the bacteria and sampling techniques. To request a free copy of this guide, please click here.
