Tests We Can Help You With

microbiology tests

USP 61 Enumeration Testing

(AKA Bioburden or Microbial Limit Test)

Per USP 61, this test will allow quantitative enumeration of mesophilic bacteria and fungi that may grow under aerobic conditions and is typically reported as TAMC (Total Aerobic Microbial Count) and TYMC (Total Yeast and Mold Count). This test is designed primarily to determine whether a substance or preparation complies with an established specification for microbiological quality. Suitability of the chosen bioburden method must be established; i.e. the ability of the test to detect microorganisms in the presence of the product to be tested must be established.

This test provides an evaluation of the viable microorganisms, or bioburden load, of a sample ranging from raw materials to finished products.

USP 51 Antimicrobial Effectiveness Testing

Per USP <51>, this chapter provides procedures to demonstrate the effectiveness of added antimicrobial preservatives. This test is the industry’s most common method used to gauge preservative effectiveness and is used to evaluate the effect of preservatives in various products such as cosmetics, personal care products, and drug products.

AET testing may also be performed with different requirements than those listed in USP, per Client requirements. Challenge organisms are generally based on likely contaminants to a drug product while considering its physical attributes, formulation, and intended use.

USP 60 & USP 62

The tests listed in USP 60 and 62 are performed to determine the presence or absence of a specified list of microorganisms: Burkholderia cepacia (USP <60>), Bile-Tolerant Gram Negative Bacteria, Candida albicans, Clostridia, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella. The tests are designed primarily to determine whether a substance or preparation complies with an established specification for microbiological quality.

Water Analysis

Microbial evaluation of a water system can be done via multiple pathways. Manufacturing facilities are typically required to meet specific requirements for water systems depending on the products being manufactured as well as the sources being utilized. Our team will work with you to determine the best route to take for your testing needs.

Commonly requested Water Testing Services

Enumeration of Microbial Load

-Customizable to meet requirements listed in various USP chapters as well as Client specific requirements

-Commonly performed alongside identification of recovered growth

Presence or Absence of E.coli/Coliforms in Water System

Enumeration/Identification of Environmental Sampling

Environmental monitoring is a critical program for manufacturers and developers to ensure that facilities are in line with microbiological requirements for areas such as surfaces, equipment, and even air quality. AAL has the capability to enumerate environmental samples such as surface swabs and sponges, contact plates, and air sampling plates. In addition to tracking the microbial load of these samples, identification services may also be performed to assist in the categorization of results for alert and action limit reports, etc.

Microbial Identification/Microbial Investigation

Microbial Identification may be performed to multiple levels, depending on your testing needs. See the below offered options.

All identification options may be used in the isolation and identification of “unknowns” i.e. if you need to know if that strange looking substance on your roll of paper towel is a living organism or not.

Gram Stain of bacterial isolate(s)

Classification of Objectionable Organisms

-The laboratory will determine if recovered growth is classified as an objectionable or specified organism per a Client-determined list.

Species Identification

-The laboratory will determine the identification of a bacterial isolate to the species level.

Fungal Identification

-The laboratory will determine the identification of a fungal isolate to the species level.

Challenge Study / Kill Time Study

Challenge or Kill Time Studies are performed to measure the activity of an antimicrobial agent against specified organisms. The test measures the change in bacterial load within a specified “Kill Time” and determines the percentage of organisms killed over time. As with most offered analyses, this type of test is customizable and built to your testing needs.

Method Suitability/Validations

Method Suitability or Method Validations are performed to ensure the ability of the test method to detect microorganisms in the presence of the product. This is a crucial step in the testing of any product as it guarantees that the results of the method used are accurate and can be trusted. Without performing a method suitability or validation, uncertainty remains in any results that are reported.

Chemistry Tests

Analytical Chemistry

The United States Pharmacopeia – National Formulary (USP-NF) includes quality standards for medicines, active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients (inactive ingredients). These standards are used to help ensure the quality of medicines and their ingredients, and to protect the safety of patients everywhere. Testing per USP requirements allows our Clients to demonstrate regulatory compliance for their products and/or devices. USP Testing may be performed by general chapters as well as partial or full monographs depending on your testing needs.

Per USP, Monographs set the quality expectations for a specific article including for its identity, strength, purity, and performance. General Chapters, on the other hand, may be applicable to multiple articles.

Common General Chapter analyses

<191> Identification Tests – General

<197> Spectroscopic Identification Tests

<221> Chloride and Sulfate

<228> Ethylene Oxide and Dioxane

<231> Heavy Metals

FCC Testing

The Food Chemical Codex (FCC) is an internationally recognized compendium of standards that are used to verify the identity, quality, and purity of food ingredients. FCC Monographs include food-grade chemicals, processing aids, food ingredients, flavoring agents, vitamins, and functional food ingredients.

Elemental Analysis

Elemental analysis is an evaluation of the levels of elemental impurities in a test article; this can be qualitative (determining the specific elements present), quantitative (determining the amount of elements present), or semiquantitative (determining the amount within a particular range) depending on testing needs.


Elemental analysis can be performed by the following instrumentation, as well as by various general chemistry techniques.

-> ICP-MS, Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry, is mainly used for samples with low levels of total dissolved solids, and is useful in analyzing samples with low regulatory limits.

-> ICP-OES, Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry, is used for samples such as ground water, wastewater, soil and solid waste. In general, ICP-OES is used to measure contaminants for environmental safety assessment and elements with higher regulatory limits.

Purity and Content Analysis

Purity and Content Analysis test methods can vary significantly depending on the test articles being analyzed as well as the instrumentation used. This type of testing can be either qualitative or quantitative and may be used to confirm the presence or concentration of a specific analyte within a test article. See below for a non-exhaustive list of instrumentation available at Accelerated Analytical Labs and contact us to discuss your specific testing needs.

-> Gas Chromatography (GC) – GC-FID, GC-HS, GC-MS, HS/GC-MS

-> High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) – HPLC-MS, UPLC

-> Ion Chromatography – IC

-> Thin Layer Chromatography

Wet Chemistry

Wet Chemistry analysis typically refers to analytical chemistry that is performed without the use of quantitative instrumentation such as HPLC or GC, and can be done with samples for which the measure of the sample is too small for other instrumental methods. Our analysts are skilled in a wide range of both qualitative and quantitative techniques such as colorimetry, gravimetry, and titrimetry. Our facility houses an expansive collection of analytical equipment such as Autotitrators, Ultraviolet-Visible Spectroscopy (UV-VIS), Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Densimeters, etc.

Method Validations

Method Validations are performed to ensure the ability of the test method to analyze the specified analyte(s) in the presence of the product. This is a crucial step in the testing of any product as it guarantees that the results of the method used are accurate and can be trusted. Without performing a method suitability or validation, uncertainty remains in any results that are reported.

-> Full method validations per USP <1225> include the validation of a methods accuracy, precision, specificity, detection limit, linearity and range, robustness, and quantitation limit as applicable.

-> Method verifications of compendial methods per USP <1226> are also available upon request.
