Laboratory Technical Experience

Suburban Testing Laboratories has over 50 years of experience in environmental testing for microbiological, inorganic and organic contaminants.  Our technical staff has grown from a few technicians in the late 1990’s to a full staff of highly educated analytical professionals today (over 60% have BS in biology or chemistry).   We continuously rank on the list of Greater Reading’s Top 50 Businesses.

Most of our focus is on water, wastewater and biosolids analysis.  Our laboratory staff is trained not only on the tests they perform but on the basics of water and wastewater operations which allows them to understand why they are performing the tests they perform.

Our automated instrumentation coupled with our highly specialized computer system allow us to provide accurate and reliable data at faster than average turnaround times while maintaining a competitive price.  We are continuously investing in new technology and systematic improvements to keep our costs low and we pass those savings on to our clients.

We are accredited in accordance with the National Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program (NELAP) and have a highly developed quality system that ensures uncompromising data quality.  Our staff is provided with ethics and data integrity training to bridge the gap between what they do each day and our primary job duty which is protecting the environment.

It’s all in our pursuit to be More than Just Lab Testing.℠
