Carle Place, NY, December 30th, 2015
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Carle Place laboratory received CDC ELITE certification for Legionella testing. EMSL now has 12 CDC ELITE laboratories within its network of facilities across North America, which is more than any other laboratory in the United States.
“EMSL is continually working to increase the number of EMSL labs which are CDC ELITE certified,” said Diane Miskowski, MPH, Legionella Program Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “There has been an increased demand for regional Legionella testing locations across the country. This is a result of the recent passage of ASHRAE 188 for preventing legionellosis in building water systems, along with the outbreaks in cities like New York. These events 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 Legionella testing, EMSL Carle Place offers testing services for asbestos, indoor air quality (IAQ), microbiology, and lead and metals. EMSL Carle Place is accredited for AIHA-LAP for lead and micro, AIHA ELPAT for paint chips, soil, dust wipes and air, AIHA IHPAT for asbestos, NVLAP for air and bulk and IRSST Recognition for PLM and TEM.
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.
