We are committed to providing top quality analysis results and responsive service to clients at competitive pricing.
Mould growth in indoor environments has been increasingly recognized as a potential threat to occupant health. Some moulds may be pathogenic and/or toxigenic. Fungi exist everywhere on the earth. The number of fungal species has been estimated at 1.5 million and about 100,000 species have been identified and reported thus far. The skill for correct identification of moulds cannot be achieved over a short term. This requires years of education and years of hands-on specific experience.
At present, there is no Canadian government regulation or certification for environmental microbiology laboratories. The most reliable criteria for a high-quality laboratory are its personnel’s qualification/training and QA/QC programs. EMC Laboratory is proud to have experienced PhD mycologists to analyse your samples. Our exceptional experience in mycology/microbiology makes us confident in our outstanding analysis protocols, and quality assurance/control programs, and subsequently in providing accurate and reliable analysis results in timely manner to clients.
Our services are available 24/7 in order to provide better response to any emergency situation. We can also customize analysis report formats upon special request. EMC laboratory is committed to delivering the best services available in the industry, whilst providing top quality mould analysis and rapid screening (1 or 2 days) for sewage contamination/clearance.
