Microbial Contamination Investigations    

Bacteria and other microbes are a natural part of our world. However, when they occur in areas and processes that need to be microbe free, problems can arise. Issues with product spoilage, reduced shelf life, and biofilm formation can be costly, can undermine consumer confidence and reduce efficiency.  RPC has assisted many companies with the identification of high risk areas for contamination, source tracking, identification of offending microorganisms, and provided mitigation strategies and assays for ongoing monitoring and process improvement. 

With a full range of culturable and non-culturable techniques at our disposal, we can help locate and identify the causative organism.
