A Denver laboratory providing a full range of analytical services to the mountain-west and midwest.

Our Denver laboratory was our first effort west of the Mississippi, and vital to have a presence in the western half of the United States. The Denver lab is located at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, right between two major highways (6th Ave., and Interstate 70), and allows for clients to come down out of the mountains right to our location, as well as service the city of Denver. With a drop box located behind our building, it allows clients the ability to drop off samples at any time.

This location provides our full range of analytical services to support indoor air quality, healthcare, and commercial industries. Specific analysis includes viable cultures for bacteria/fungi, non-viable spore traps, tape/swab/bulk direct microscopic analysis, Legionella culture analysis, bulk PLM and PCM air asbestos analysis, Product validation, and utilizes the latest Biolog identification platform.

With accreditations from the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA LAP, LLC), National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), Colorado State Board of Drinking Water, and CDC ELITE Legionella Program, we can handle all your analytical needs.
