Back to Industries

Express Micro Science carries air quality testing and surface testing for both hospitals and pharmaceutical companies. All our testing uses internationally recognised methods such as EP, BP, USP, ISO and EN. We can also easily implement any customer supplied methods you wish to be used.

End to End Integrity
At EMS, professional testing doesn’t begin in the lab. To ensure proper handling, we provide customers with lab grade sampling materials, and if needed our trained operators can provide a full on-site sampling service. We then collect samples using our own fleet of temperature controlled vans, and deliver them to our state of the art facility for same day testing.

Scotland’s Local Lab
Our central lab is ideally located to receive samples from across mainland Scotland on the same day they were collected, and we recently expanded our testing facilities to handle growing demand for local testing. This guarantees testing takes place on the day of collection, preserving sample integrity, and providing the fastest possible results.

An Eye for the Invisible
EMS labs are equipped to uncover everything you wouldn’t want to find in your facility’s water and air supply.

Air Quality Testing
We carry out qualitative and quantitative sampling for bacterial and fungal counts in the air of your facility’s environment, and our air quality testing provides identification of isolates to species level.

Microbial Count Testing
Total aerobic microbial count (TAMC)
Total yeasts and moulds count (TYMC)

Specific Microorganism Testing

  • Escherichia coli (qualitative / quantitative)
  • Staphylococcus aureus
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  • Salmonella
  • Suitability of the test method

Lambda Gateway – Intuitive, actionable science.
We developed the Lambda Gateway, a bespoke results handling and reporting software designed to deliver the data our clients need, exactly how and when they need it. As an EMS client, Lambda puts you in control. Results can be trended, compared, and presented in near endless ways. View exactly what you need, and nothing of what you don’t, making your data fully relevant, intuitive, and quickly actionable.

Find out more about how Lambda Gateway can help.

Science meets service – Training & Support
Our service doesn’t end with your test results. Should you need any post-testing support, our microbiologists are available 7 days a week to discuss your results.

We also keep up to date with all ISO and British Standards, alerting you to any new legislation that may affect your planned sampling, testing, or corrective actions.

Our team can even provide comprehensive training courses in sample collection techniques, food and water safety, and much more. See all our training courses in the Training Services section.
