Phoenix, AZ, May 12th, 2016
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Phoenix, Arizona laboratory received CDC ELITE certification for Legionella testing. There are now 15 CDC ELITE laboratories in EMSL’s network of labs across North America, which is more than any other laboratory in the United States.
“We are very pleased of EMSL Phoenix and our other 14 laboratories for receiving their CDC ELITE certifications,” said Diane Miskowski, MPH, National Legionella Program Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “EMSL is constantly working to increase the number of CDC ELITE certified labs within our laboratory network. The current increase in demand of regional Legionella testing locations across the country 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 additional labs in the queue for Legionella certification in the upcoming year.”
Along with Legionella testing, EMSL Phoenix offers testing services for asbestos, indoor air quality (IAQ) and microbiology. EMSL Phoenix is accredited by NVLAP for bulk asbestos and airborne asbestos analysis. The laboratory is also accredited by AIHA EMLAP and AIHA EMPAT for Fungi. EMSL Phoenix also is accredited by A2LA for Food.
