Title EMSL Chicago Receives CDC ELITE Certification for Hillside, IL Laboratory
Introduction EMSL Analytical, Inc. recognizes its Chicago laboratory for CDC ELITE Certification.

Chicago, IL, November 29, 2016   

EMSL Analytical, Inc. is pleased to announce that its Chicago laboratory is now CDC ELITE certified for Legionella analysis. Nationwide, EMSL is the leading Legionella testing laboratory with 16 CDC ELITE proficient locations throughout the United States and Canada.

“With the increased demand for regional Legionella testing across the country, we are continuously working to increase the number of EMSL labs within the CDC ELITE 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 ongoing outbreak cases, have stressed the importance of having a Legionella Water Safety Plan and validating that plan by providing Legionella testing.”

Along with Legionella testing, EMSL Chicago is also accredited for fungal testing in air, bulk and surface samples by AIHA EMLAP. The laboratory also holds AIHA ELLAP, AIHA IHLAP, AIHA ELPAT and AIHA IHPAT certifications. In addition, EMSL Chicago is an A2LA approved food testing laboratory. The laboratory is also NVLAP approved for bulk and airborne asbestos analysis.
