ENVIRONMENTAL TESTING

Environmental Testing

When it comes to environmental testing, Sure-BioChem Laboratories, LLC, is the only name you need to know.

Water Testing

Our team will travel to your location to collect a water sample, then bring it back to our laboratory to test its quality. This water testing is mandated by the state of New Jersey, so once the results are known, we submit a report to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

Do you know if your water is safe?

The team of experts at Sure-BioChem Laboratories can provide you with the peace of mind you need by ensuring that the quality of your drinking water is not compromised by dangerous contaminants. By adhering to strict sampling protocols, methods and regulatory reporting requirements, SBL will restore your confidence in the safety of your drinking water.
It’s the law. Effective September 14, 2002, the New Jersey Private Well Testing Act (PWTA) requires that potable wells be tested for specific parameters as a condition for each sale of real estate property. 

The PWTA is aimed at disclosing important information about private drinking water wells. Landlords are also required to comply with this Act. Sure-BioChem Laboratories is centrally located and provides testing services to all Southern New Jersey counties.

Points of Consideration
  • Sampling and analysis must be performed by a NJDEP certified laboratory.
  • The NJDEP recommends that well water be tested annually.
  • The PWTA requires that raw, untreated water be sampled.
  • Certain Counties and/or Local Health Departments may require sampling of treated water and additional analysis.
  • The NJDEP requires specialized reports that include electronic submittals and GPS coordinates.
Air Quality Testing
Air Quality Testing
Our testing experts will monitor your air quality for safety and breathability. Testing is available for homes, school, hospitals, construction sites, and any other facility where clean air is a primary concern.
  • Mold Testing
  • Cat Dander - This test is used to detect and quantify the presence of the most
  • Dog Dander - This test is used to detect and quantify the presence of the major
  • Dust mites - This test is used to detect and quantify the presence of the two
  • Radon Testing – This is a test to detect radioactive gas that comes from the breakdown of uranium naturally found in water, soil and rock.
  • CO2 Testing – Detection of Carbon Dioxide
Stormwater, Wastewater and Groundwater Testing
Detection of Metals:
  • Arsenic
  • Barium
  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Chromium
  • Selenium
  • Zinc
  • Lead

Halogens

Determines Total Organic Halides (TOX) as chloride in drinking water and ground waters.

Flashpoint

Determines the lowest temperature at which application of the test flame ignites the vapor above the sample.

PH

Determines the acidity or basicity of a sample.

Specific Gravity

Compares the density of the sample to the density of water..

BOD

Biological Oxygen Demand determines who fast biological organisms use up oxygen in water.

COD

Chemical Oxygen Demand measures all organic carbon with the exception of certain aromatics (benzene, toluene, phenol, etc.) which are not completely oxidized in the reaction.

TOC

Total Organic Carbon measures the amount of oxidizable carbon in water.

TSS

Total Suspended Solids measures the particulate weight obtained by separating particles from a water sample using a filter.

TS

Total Solids measures the suspended and dissolved solids in a water sample.

TDS

Total Dissolved Solids measures all organic and inorganic substances indefinitely suspended in solution.

Microbial Water Testing Panel

Total Fecal Coliform

A primary indicator of "potability", suitability for consumption, of drinking water. It measures the concentration of total coliform bacteria associated with the possible presence of disease causing organisms.

Flashpoint

Heterotrophic Plate Count/ID – Procedure that estimates the number of live Heterotrophic bacteria in water.

Heterotrophic Plate Count/ID

Procedure that estimates the number of live Heterotrophic bacteria in water.

Detection of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

Identification of the specified microorganism Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Detection of Fecal strep/Enterococcus

Identification of specified microorganisms streptococcus and enterococcus.

Aspergillus sp.

Detection and identification of specified microorganism Aspergillus.

Giardia and Cryptosporidium

Detection of Giardia and Cryptosporidium parasites.

Microbial Contamination / Identification

PCR-based technology is utilized to detect the presence of bacterial, viral and host cell nucleic acids.

Bioaerosols

Classification and quantification of biological particles in the air, like mold, pollen and other organic and inorganic particulates.

Biosolid Analysis

Analysis of biosolids to determine the presence of pathogens, such as enteric virus, Salmonella and fecal coliforms.

Pesticides

Detection of pesticides in water or soil.

Kinetic Endotoxin testing by LAL

Class of compounds found in the outer membrane of certain (“gram-negative”) bacteria. High levels have been reported from a variety of environments, such as cotton mills, agriculture or wastewater treatment facilities, industrial washwater mists, and contaminated room humidifiers, where water and gram-negative bacteria can be expected to be present.
