Our testing facilities are housed in a modern, custom-designed masonry building. Temperature-controlled testing and culturing labs are equipped with photoperiod controllers, data loggers, aeration systems, and ASTM Type 1 deionized water for preparation of test dilution and culture waters. A 50KW propane-fired generator and on-site deep well insure off-grid maintenance of tests and cultures during emergencies. For more information on our facilities click here.
