Bacteria testing to increase levels of contamination understanding
Antimicrobial specialist BioCote has launched a bacteria-testing service to help organisations minimise risk by understanding levels of bacterial contamination at their premises.

The confidential service involves BioCote analysing samples from the premises in the laboratory and translating them into a report.

Richard Hastings, technical director at BioCote, explains: "Our Bacteria Testing Service ensures organisations running factories, fast food outlets, hospitals or other hygienic facilities know about any possible bacterial contamination on their premises. We have been doing lab work like this for our existing customers for almost 15 years so it makes sense to make it available to the wider market.

"Of course, every firm faces different challenges, and we have already encountered lots of reasons for using the service, including hygiene checks for franchisees, to assess existing cleaning processes or even to track down the source of known contamination."
