Customised Microbiology Test Methods

Customised test methods are required when:

Standard methods are not quite appropriate for their novel product, test methods are not available and also when internal test methods require independent validation.

Examples of this:

  • A novel test product may be in an inappropriate state for the test method e.g. a solid state antimicrobial could not be tested as part of an assay designed for testing liquid antimicrobials.
  • An assay designed for testing wound dressings may not account for the variation in dressing layers/structures and absorbencies.
  • The unique selling feature of a product may not be demonstrated using standard test methodologies.
  • Perfectus Biomed have scientists who understand that there is a commercial requirement for microbiology to go beyond the laboratory bench and to more accurately replicate real life scenarios.

How Perfectus Biomed can help;

  • Our services include extensive consultation with clients in order to ensure that we understand the microbiological question you are seeking to answer and the intended data use.
  • We tailor our method design so that it is appropriate for the testing of your product.
  • All assays include appropriate positive and negative controls and suitable repeats in order to ensure validity of the data.
  • We employ PhD microbiologists to run your projects to ensure a detailed understanding of your research.
