An overview of some of our services:

  • Legionella analysis
    Companies and institutions are legally required to have water tested periodically for the presence of the Legionella bacteria. As an ISO17025 accredited institution, Normec BioBheer is the party for analysing your Legionella water samples. Normec BioBeheer is one of the few laboratories in The Netherlands accredited for using what is known as the PCR method. In this process, confirmation and characterisation of Legionella bacteria is carried out via DNA testing. This yields a considerable saving in time compared to the traditional confirmation method.
  • Legionella analysis of wastewater
    Analysis of wastewater for Legionella is a specialism in its own right. Analysis of wastewater is more difficult than drinking-water, because it contains a lot of different types of micro-organisms. Normec BioBeheer is the only laboratory in The Netherlands that is accredited for both sample-taking and analysis in accordance with the Legionella in Wastewater NEN-EN-ISO 19458/NEN-EN-ISO 11731 standards.
  • Microbiological air- and surface surveys
    Micro-organisms are present both outdoors and inside the workplace. Normec BioBeheer examines the presence of (harmful) bacteria, fungi and yeasts by taking and analysing microbiological indoor environment samples (from both the air and surfaces). By locating these bacteria, insight can be gained into how to improve air conditioning installations, ventilation ducts and/or the workplace.
