Ductwork swab testing is carried out mainly in ventilation systems serving clinically clean or sterile areas in the healthcare and food manufacturing sectors including hospitals, laboratories, cleanrooms etc. Testing is used to check if there is a presence of microbiological organisms in ductwork could be problematic. High moisture, warm conditions and poor hygiene of ductwork could potentially lead to the growth of harmful pathogenic microorganisms.

Any swab sampling required to meet specific needs should be identified before work commences. All our engineers are fully trained to TR19 and BS EN 15780 standards. Our engineer’s take a ductwork swab sample from the surface of the ventilation ductwork and it’s sent to an independent UKAS certified laboratory so cultures can be grown and identified
