Microbiological Analysis and Microbiological Projects

(Only available to clients within Australia)

The Microbiological Laboratory at SWEP can perform a range of microbiological analyses as desired, either for specific microorganisms or microbial groups. These are included in lists below, but could be for many other microorganisms as required.

Our Microbiologists have many years of experience and a wide range of experience, so we can also carry out microbiological investigation for troubleshooting problems or carrying out research-type projects in the industrial, soil, food, corrosion, or environmental areas.

Contact us about your microbiological requirements.

The package of microorganisms within the Complete soil balance analysis (Code: CT-1) are as follows;

  • Lactic Acid Bacteria
  • General Fungi and Cellulolytic Fungi
  • Yeasts
  • Actinomycetes
  • Photosynthetic Bacteria

All five of active biological indicators above:    $250.00 + GST (unless part of CT-1)

This package of organisms is also found as part of the analysis for:

  • Complete soil balance analysis (Code: CT-1)
  • Complete Fertiliser analysis/ Worm Leachate analysis (Code: CFT-1)
  • Microbial analysis (in Soil or Fertiliser)
  • Microbial Balance (Soil)
  • Organic Soil Audit
  • Organic Complete soil balance analysis 

For a breakdown of all the above tests please see our price list.
