CLEANING EFFICACY TESTING SERVICES

As an alternative to EMSL's qPCR test for the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus, we offer ‘Cleaning Efficacy Testing Services’.  The results of these tests would demonstrate that the sampled surface area has been effectively cleaned and free of bacteria or fungi. If a virucide was included in the surface cleaning protocol, then this swab test indicates the surface was properly treated.

EMSL recommends the following tests on a ‘Swab’ as soon as possible/immediately post-cleaning to each area:

1) If the identification of the microbes is needed, the following culture tests can be sampled using a single swab:

  • Identification and Enumeration of Culturable Fungi – 2 Week TAT – EMSL Test Code M007 (Call for Pricing)
  • Identification and Enumeration of Culturable Bacteria – 1 Week TAT – EMSL Test Code M011 (Call for Pricing)
  • Sample Report for M007 and M011


2) For FASTER RESULTS, we recommend the below enumeration tests that can be sampled using a single swab:

  • Fungal Plate Count (Total Culturable Fungi, no IDs) – 5 Day TAT – EMSL TEST CODE M257 (Call for Pricing)
  • Bacterial Plate Count (Total Culturable Bacteria, no IDs) – 48 Hour TAT – EMSL TEST CODE M258 (Call for Pricing)
  • Sample Report for M257 and M258

 
The following EMSL AIHA-EMLAP Accredited laboratory for Fungi+Bacteria culture can perform the above testing:
