BAL Laboratory, the Microbiology division of Thielsch Engineering, Inc., has been providing testing services related to environmental and public health microbiology for over 16 years. These services include both conventional and unique/custom approaches for monitoring and assessing microbial contamination problems.
We perform analyses for potable and non-potable water including, but not limited to, Total Coliform, Fecal Coliform, E. Coli, and Enterococcus by MPN, MF and P/A methods. With a number of growth mediums at our disposal (mEI, mTEC, mEndo, mFC, LTB, BGB, EC, ECMUG, NA-MUG, Colisure, Colilert, mCP), we can tailor an analysis to meet a client’s requirements as well as the requirements of the sample.
We perform analyses for soil and sediment samples including, but not limited to, Total Coliform, Fecal Coliform, E. Coli, and Salmonella. We are also one of very few laboratories in the United States that provide analysis of Clostridium Perfringens in sediment samples.
BAL also currently performs several different analyses for food products including produce, poultry, meat, and seafood. Some of the analyses that we provide are Salmonella, E. Coli, E. Coli 0157:H7, Listeria, Total Aerobic Plate Count, Yeast and Mold, and Staphlococcus Aureus.
In addition, BAL Laboratory also provides Indoor Air Quality testing services. These services include full visual inspection, sample collection, sample analysis, and full detailed reports on all findings. We also provide analysis of Air Cassette and swab samples taken by our clients.
