Accredited Total Plate Count on contact paddles –
The first in SA!

In the past there were no laboratories in SA accredited for Total plate count (TPC) on a contact paddle (CP). We are the ONLY lab in SA that is accredited at this stage. This might lead to major changes in the cleaning industry once this news breaks.
This method is cost effective and our turn-around time from receipt at our lab is 48 hours.This can’t be matched by another lab as yet.
