EMSL Awarded CDC ELITE Certification for Legionella Testing in Orlando
EMSL Analytical, Inc. offers legionella testing services nationwide to assist with validating Legionella Water Safety Plans.
EMSL Analytical, Inc. is proud to announce that its Orlando, Florida laboratory received CDC ELITE certification for Legionella testing, making it the first testing laboratory in Orlando with this accreditation. There are now 15 CDC ELITE proficient laboratories in EMSL’s network of laboratories across North America, which is more than any other laboratory in the United States.
“We are very pleased of EMSL Orlando and our other 14 laboratories for receiving their CDC ELITE certifications,” said Diane Miskowski, MPH, National Legionella Program Manager at EMSL Analytical, Inc. “EMSL is constantly working to increase the number of CDC ELITE certified labs within our laboratory network. With the recent passage of ASHRAE 188 for preventing legionellosis in building water systems, along with the outbreaks in cities like New York, there has been an increase in demand of regional Legionella testing locations across the country. These events have stressed the importance of having a Legionella Water Safety Plan and validating that strategy by conducting Legionella testing.”
Along with Legionella testing, EMSL Orlando offers asbestos, indoor air quality (IAQ), microbiology, lead, metals and food testing services. EMSL Orlando is accredited by the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) for bulk asbestos. In addition, the laboratory is certified by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) IHPAT for asbestos testing. The laboratory is also accredited by AIHA EMLAP and AIHA EMPAT for bacteria and fungi analysis.
