Welcome to RespirTek – an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Certified BioEnvironmental Service Laboratory

RespirTek, Inc. is an ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accredited laboratory for a host of environmental testing services related to consumer product biodegradability certifications, wastewater treatment and toxicity assessments or optimized bioremediation and/or natural attenuation strategies. Our ISO/IEC 17025:2017 Certification is recognized internationally and demonstrates RespirTek’s technical proficiency executing test methods within the scope of accreditation.

RespirTek’s accreditation scope includes ASTM/OECD/ISO biodegradability and compostability testing specifications that enable direct material classifications such as Ready or Ultimate Biodegradability.

As you search for a laboratory to work with for your specific testing application, strong consideration should be given to the laboratory’s ability to perform quality work in a consistent, reproducible fashion. At RespirTek we stand firmly behind our testing and published results because we follow strict procedures that give us the necessary assurances regarding our representation of the final data. Through ISO/IEC 17025:2017 certification our clients are provided with the highest levels of confidence regarding documentation, data quality, and accurate reporting when they choose to test with RespirTek. Our results are accepted by national and international regulatory and certifying organizations. Don’t wait until you are challenged to realize the data you received from another laboratory is insufficient. Test with confidence when you test with RespirTek.

Respirometry as a Direct Probe into Microbial Systems

RespirTek has pioneered the use of respirometry over the years (since 2001) using internally-developed protocols for applications in bioremediation and wastewater treatment. Our ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation is unique in providing accredited testing for site-specific wastewater treatment or bioremediation studies that fall outside the scope of typical standardized methods. The RespirTek Technical Team has been active in the development of new laboratory protocols that focus specifically on the environmental challenges at hand. Our approach provides an economical means for assessing the potential of biological remediation at either soil and groundwater contaminated sites or municipal wastewater treatment facilities.

RespirTek’s overall goal is to provide higher levels of confidence in the environmental engineering and design of biological systems and consumer product biodegradation by offering economical, lab-scale assessments with good transferability to applications.

RespirTek™ employs respirometry to monitor microorganisms in real time. This enables us to continuously monitor respiration rates and contrast microbial metabolic activity with chemical analyses to understand the dynamics of the biological response in a variety of systems. Furthermore, by coupling microbial respiration to depletion of target substrate concentrations, real-time degradation rates can be obtained in addition to a deeper understanding of the limiting factors for bioremediation. The substrate degradation rates are then compared to microbial respiration rates to ascertain the selectivity of the microbial consortia in specifically targeting the substrate of concern.
