What is MicroID Environmental testing?
We believe it is too late to discover that a harmful pathogen is present in your healthcare facility because of a positive blood test. These situations cause alarm and fear notwithstanding lost revenue due to non-reimbursement and litigation risk around HAIs and CAIs.
What if you had the visibility for areas with high counts of bacteria and if those counts contained deadly pathogens? Through MicroID testing, we can identify pathogens that may be present in your healthcare facility, like Mrsa, Staph, and even SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
After swabbing contaminated areas and collecting air samples, we submit all specimens to a certified lab partner for environmental analysis to identify specific microorganisms within 24-72 hours.
The results establish a microbial baseline, including any identified pathogens, that informs the intensity of recommended disinfection cadence by a skilled DisinfectWell technician to decontaminate your healthcare environment.
We only use the best for microbial testing
For over twenty years, Aerobiology has provided expert microbial services. Their services include viral, bacterial, fungal testing from air, surfaces, and water. Their quality services make them one of the most prestigious laboratory services in the American Industrial Hygiene Association.
Established in 1975, Midwest Laboratories has been performing a wide variety of analyses for 45+ years. Their analytical testing facilities use advanced technology, and their staff has adept skills to provide accurate results for their clients. They also happen to be the largest lab in America.
Why MicroID testing?
High concentrations of bacteria usually mean a greater chance a pathogen lives on surfaces such as door handles, hand railings, and keyboards, especially in hospitals and clinics. Using MicroID environmental testing, we can precisely identify what bacteria is there and combat it effectively.
There are two MicroID tests available with DisinfectWell services.
Broad Spectrum MicroID testing (Environmental Testing)
MicroID is a microbial baseline test of surfaces and air within your healthcare facility. MicroID helps us understand what microorganisms are present in your healthcare facility. We leverage this data to recommend an appropriate disinfection program and subsequent testing frequency in line with your preference or definition of mitigating contamination risk.
MicroID Pathogen Rule out Testing
Specific microbial tests that rule out the presence of particular pathogens (including SARS-CoV-2, the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19) on surfaces and air in your healthcare environment. We offer MicroID Pathogen Rule-out Testing for viruses, bacteria, and fungus upon request or recommended by us when we see significant spikes in microbial contamination during routine ATP testing between disinfection service events.
