Our Services

We perform wide ranging microbiological and chemical analysis to determine environmental hygiene and sanitation.This includes analysis of microbial biofilm, air quality testing, presence of bacteria on Table top, other surfaces in operation theaters, food processing environment.

Mangalore Biotech Laboratory is accredited by NABL to perform some of the most important microbiological and chemical analysis. Our analysis capabilities are targeted towards determination of quality and safety of food, water and beverages. Some of the typical analysis we do are indicated below. Additional analysis can be undertaken by request:

Microbiological tests
Total plate count
Yeast and mold count
Total coliforms (count or presence/absence)
Fecal coliform count (count or presence/absence)
Escherichia coli count (count or presence/absence)
Listeria monocytogenes
Vibrio cholerae
Vibrio parahaemolyticus
Campylobacter spp

Chemical tests
Total dissolved solids
pH, colour, odour, turbidity
Residual chlorine
Hardness, Alkalinity

Other parameters as requested.

We perform analysis for a wide range of parameters in swimming pool water, industrial effluents and waste water.Many of the microbiological and chemical analysis performed is within the scope of NABL accreditation. Some typical analysis performed are indicated below:

Detection/enumeration of indicator and pathogenic bacteria (total and fecal coliforms, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas).

Autotrophic and heterotrophic bacteria forming biofilms on cooling towers, causing corrosion, biofouling.

Residual chlorine, dissolved oxygen, total dissolved solids, Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD), Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), oil and grease, conductivity.

Aquaculture industry requests for analysis of shrimp for presence of pathogenic viruses (WSSV, MBV, HPV, IHHNV, TSV, IMNV)or pathogenic bacteria (Vibriospp, EMS/AHPND). We perform PCR analysis for the presence of pathogenic viruses and bacteria.We also perform Vibrio counts, luminous bacterial counts in hatchery and farm samples.
We can also test farm water for presence of dinoflagellates, BOD, COD, Total dissolved solids, hardness, alkalinity,dissolved oxygen, residual chlorine, ammonia, nitrate, nitrite, hydrogen sulphide, phosphates, iron and other parameters.

We have ben undertaking contract research on a number of topics involving molecular biology, microbiology and biochemical parameters. MBL has undertaken contract research in medical, dental, environmental and aquaculture areas. The work carried out will be based on customer requirements. Please contact the Laboratory indicating your requirements.
