Get to know RespirTek™


RespirTek™ is the only laboratory to offer Microbial Communication Service™ representing the most advanced methodology used in bioremediation microcosm studies and wastewater toxicity/treatability studies. We communicate with microorganisms in real time using respirometry, continuously monitoring respiration rates and comparing with chemical analyses to understand the dynamics of the biological response to the biochemical system. By coupling microbial respiration to decreases in substrate concentrations, real-time degradation rates can be obtained in addition to a deeper understanding of the limiting factors for bioremediation.

Whether you require biofeasibility studies, wastewater testing, ground water testing, soil remediation testing, chemical oxidation testing, product testing or other environmental laboratory testing services, you can be assured that the highest standards possible have been employed when you work with us. RespirTek also holds USDA permitting for receipt of international soil samples and can conduct Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) studies on request.

RespirTek is committed to exceeding client expectations by providing technical expertise, exceptional testing services, and outstanding customer service in the fields of product testing for biodegradability, bioremediation microcosm studies, and wastewater treatment toxicity/treatability studies. RespirTek continues to strive for continuous improvement through the empowerment of its Team Members and business partners.
