Microbiological Lab Analyses
BTI Products offers several different microbiological lab analyses to supplement on-site testing as well as to provide clients unable to perform on-site testing with reliable viable culture analyses.
MICkit® & MIPkit™ Test Kit Reports
For clients who would like a formal written report on their MICkit® and MIPkit™ test results and interpretations of the data. This option is useful for clients wanting documented third-party verification of test results.
To order a test kit report, fill out the Analytical Requests Sheet included with the kit instructions and return, along with your completed test kit, to BTI Products at the address listed.
The most accurate method for determination of viable bacteria is to use BTI Products’ MICkit® or MIPkit™ test kits on site. See Products for descriptions and pricing.
If on-site testing is not an option, samples may be sent to BTI Products for viable cultures analyses. However, results will be subject to qualification because of conditions surrounding the collection and shipping/handling of the samples before they reach BTI Products’ laboratory.
