Water Testing

The QA Laboratory carries out routine water testing for internal and external clients. The department uses a manifold and sterile canister system that can be adapted for various testing regimes and micro-organisms using a variety of testing media.

All pharmaceutical water testing is carried out to ensure that British Pharmacopoeia (BP), European Pharmacopoeia (Ph.Eur.) and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) requirements are met. Examples of testing carried out include: 

  • Total Viable Colony count (TVC) testing 
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas spp. 
  • Coliforms and Escherichia coli (E.coli) 
  • Staphylococcus spp 

Testing regimes can be set up to meet regulatory requirements dependent on customer request. As well as pharmaceutical water testing, testing can be carried out for potable water supplies, sterility services and the food industry. We can work with customers to provide testing to meet their demands.
