Microbiological

Our accurate interpretation of results from accredited laboratories is vital for pathogenic bacteria control.

Background

Regular monitoring allows the environment to be directly gauged and trended over time, so that ongoing control of the environment is documented. It is particularly important when Legionella control measures are in place, such as implementation of a Water Management Plan.

We recommend and utilize laboratories that are AIHA Industrial Hygiene & Environmental Microbiology accredited and other important certifications such as the CDC Elite Certification for Legionella enumeration. To ensure the production of accurate and defensible data, we choose laboratories that adhere to a thorough Quality Assurance Program. This program ensures the customer that a high standard of accuracy, reliability, and impartiality are consistently applied to all services rendered.

Precept Environmental, Inc. can provide full service microbiological analytical testing, including the following general types of analysis:

  • Microbiology Analyses
    for Bacteria
  • Mold Sampling
  • Swab Analysis
    for Surfaces

For any kind of analytical testing, the key to success is their interpretation. Precept Advisors use industry guidelines so that interpretation of your results is clear. Standards and guidelines are not proprietary, so we help to empower our customers by arming them with this information. Because of our industry experience we can also help determine control parameters specific to your systems. Should results indicate corrective action is necessary, we advise appropriate actions to help reestablish control.

Who We Are

After over a decade of experience in water management and chemical water treatment, Precept Environmental, Inc. was founded in 2008 by Britt Rodgers and Johanna Astaire with the goal of providing customers unbiased solutions in water management. They were dedicated to building a business that was based purely on consulting and support services, free of any ties to chemical or equipment solutions, or an in-house laboratory. By prioritizing our customers’ best interests, we have earned their trust and loyalty. These founding goals remain deeply rooted in our business model and will continue to dictate how we conduct business.
