Microbiological Testing

Our microbiology lab tests for non-sterile products as per the latest pharmacopoeia guidelines. We cover testing on pharmaceutical, cosmetics, specials, herbal, and nutriceuticals products, including the associated validation requirements. Our standard range of QC tests are listed below. 

Microbial Limits Testing

The Microbial Limits Test gives a quantitative and qualitative of specific viable microorganisms in samples.

We carry out the Microbial Limits Testing by 

- Total Aerobic Microbial Count (TAMC)  

- Total Yeast and Moulds Count (TYMC).

Water Testing

We perform micro testing on water:

  • Total count
  • Coliform screen
  • Pathogen screen
  • Endotoxin testing

We also carry out chemical testing for water.

Absence Of Pathogens

This method determines the presence or absence of specified pathogens that can include combinations of the following microorganisms:


- Escherichia coli

- Salmonella spp

- Pseudomonas aeruginosa

- Staphylococcus aureus

- Clostridia spp

Preservative Efficacy Test (PET)

Also known as "Challenge Testing", Aspire Labs tests samples to evaluate the efficacy of preservation of a product against microbial contamination.
