    Hi everyone.

    We’re looking for labs that will analyse environmental swabs for the presence (and ideally numbers) of any pathogens on surfaces.
    We’d like to implement this as part of our infection control auditing.
    Does anyone know of any labs that will do this for private clinics?
    I’ve searched the internet and spoken to some other healthcare providers, but have not had much luck so far.
    Thanks!

    Kind regards,
