Microbiological labs deal with harmful and infectious agents. Facilities dealing with hazardous pathogens must take extreme precautions to prevent infection of microbiologists and lab technicians. Adequate precautions are also necessary to limit the contamination of the work environment and the community at large.
Kewaunee offers a complete range of microbiological laboratory services ranging from risk assessment to quarantine and isolation wards.
