Upon the ESKAPES article being published by Nick Barsby, ALS Environmental’s Sales & Marketing Manager and Co-author of the ESKAPES paper, comments:

The risk posed by these pathogens is significant. In the UK we have long been aware of the risks posed by Legionella, these are outlined in ACoP L8 and HTM04-01. Pseudomonas aeruginosa has also come under scrutiny in recent years; however, the analytical techniques to identify some of these pathogens have, until recently, been expensive. Utilising the MALDI-ToF ALS Environmental are able to offer a cost effective approach to identifying these bacteria in an efficient and timely manner.

To discuss your analytical requirements, including ESKAPESMALDI-ToF confirmations and Legionella analysis, or for any other queries please liaise with your Customer Service Co-ordinator or contact us on 02476 42 12 13.

We had potential water quality problem due to the actions of a third party and needed samples taken as a matter of urgency. Although this was outside the strict terms of our contract with ALS they were able to provide a sampler on a Friday afternoon, get the samples taken and returned to their labs for analysis.

They backed this excellent performance up by emailing us the sample results over the weekend. All in all a great piece of customer service!
