To monitor key areas in contamination routes, we can use the following methods to determine the hygiene and environmental conditions to assess the effectiveness of cleaning, sanitation, and employee hygiene practices, especially for manufacturing industry and also F&B industry.

We can help in determining the source of contamination especially the important ones like pathogens. Sampling methods applied are as following:

  1. Air Monitoring (Active Air sampling or Passive Air sampling)
  2. Equipment surface swab sampling using contact plates and swab
  3. Hand Swab sampling

Tests performed include:

  • Total Viable Counts (TVC)
  • Yeasts and Molds
  • Staphylococcus Aureus
  • Legionella
  • Listeria
  • Salmonella
  • Total coliforms
  • E coli
