Hello all,

 

Can you recommend me a Laboratory that do Colony count test based in EU regulation, both in United State or Mexico. Our customers are from Europa/Asia, so we need compliance too with these regulations.

 

Thank you so much!

 

Happy Thanksgiving Day  ^_^

Almost Christmas  :santa:

Hi QS,

 

Yr query maybe requires more detail.

 

There are a variety of types of "Colony Counts" depending on the context/objective.

 

Which specific EU Regulation are you referring to ?


Kind Regards,

I'm referred on this EU regulation COMMISSION DIRECTIVE (EU) 2015-1787 of 6 Oct 2015 that mentioned:

 

Enumeration of culturable microorganism - Colony count 22°C (EN ISO 6222)

Enumeration of culturable microorganism - Colony count 36°C (EN ISO 6222)

Hi QS,

 

Thks yr response.

 

I deduce from the Directive that you are only interested in drinking water analysis. (afaik the quoted lower temperature value is not routinely used for any other products/APC).

 

I anticipate that most accredited commercial laboratories are capable of colony count of water. The only slightly special requirement might be a sub-ambient incubator.


Kind Regards,

unfortunately, no one wants to carry out the test, at least not the laboratories we have contacted. That's why he's looking for recommendations.

 

Thanks!
