    Standard (7-10 days).

  • 1. Total Coliform/ E. coli

    Description:

    Analysis includes the identification Total Coliform bacteria and E. coli through a chromagenic substrate test method. This method only detects the presence or absence of these bacteria and does not provide enumeration.

    Available Turnaround Time:

    Next day, holiday and weekend rush.

  • 3. Sewage Screening

    Description:

    Analysis includes identification of Total Coliforms, E.coli, and Enterococcus bacteria through a chromagenic substrate analysis. These bacteria type are considered to be indicator organisms for sewage contamination. This method only detects the presence or absence of these bacteria and does not provide enumeration.

    Sample Types:

    Water, Environmental Samples (Swabs, Bulk Materials, Wipes)

    Available Turnaround Time:

    SEEML, established in 2004, is an independent asbestos analysis laboratory located in Greenville, South Carolina. Our asbestos division provides accurate, affordable, quick turnaround asbestos testing for home owners/buyers/sellers, realtors and environmental consultants nationwide. We also provide testing services to international customers with asbestos testing needs.

    Asbestos is a known carcinogen and exposure may result in mesothelioma and other cancers. Asbestos poses the greatest danger when it becomes airborne. Demolishing, repairing or otherwise disturbing asbestos containing materials (ACM) may cause a release, resulting in asbestos fibers becoming airborne. The following are some of the common ACM that might be found in any home: acoustic ceiling spray, floor tiles, linoleum, insulation, drywall/joint compound, exterior stucco, roofing materials, among others. Prior to disturbing suspect ACM, it is advisable to have a sample of the material tested by an accredited laboratory. SEEMLs NVLAP accredited laboratory provides fast and confidential testing, with turn-around times of less than 24 hours, available.

We hope to be of service to you and your company. Please call the lab to request additional information and pricing.

SEEML is Committed to excellence and going above and beyond in client services and support.
  • SEEML is excited to offer on-site Direct Microscopic Examination for the analysis of surface samples (Tape, Swab & Bulk). On-Site analysis referes to an analyst being present to analyze samples on site as they are sampled. In response to client demands for immediate turnaround times on critical projects, SEEML has designed and implemented a program to have samples processed and analyzed on-site. Our Microbiologist/ Mycologist will travel to your location along with all equipment and supplies necessary to perform the analysis as the samples get collected.

    Clients will save:

    1. Time, samples can be analyzed immediately after sampling and reanalyzing samples immediately if failed to clear.

    2. Money, samples do not need to be shipped to the lab and eliminate the needs to have costly personnel & equipment site idle while they wait for data.

    3. Peace of Mind, sampling, processing, analysis and reporting are coupled into a controlled and efficient package.

    SEEML has successfully implemented this program at sites accross the Continental United States. This service is not covered by our main lab's accreditations. For further inquires, including pricing, details of services as well as other questions you may have, please feel free to contact the lab @ 864-233-3770 or email to sales@seeml.com
