ProMicro: Science with Ethics

Welcome to ProMicro

ProMicro is an industrial/environmental microbiological consulting laboratory based in Perth, Western Australia. We are a leader in food microbiology relating to food poisoning, spoilage and shelf life determination and together have over 100 years experience. We also undertake microbiological analyses of waters for industry, potability and swimming pool water quality.

In the Legionella field, ProMicro is an industry leader and has been involved in detection of these organisms since well before the introduction of AS 3666 for the microbial control of air handling systems for buildings.

ProMicro has been a pioneer in bioremediation work by using micro organisms to break down various types of waste products.

Wherever microbes are involved in industry, ProMicro can help you with biological solutions.


APRIL 2013
ProMicro has joined with one of the world's leading microbiological companies, 3M, to bring you the latest isothermal DNA amplification, and bioluminescence detection technology enabling us to confidently release negative Salmonella results the next day. Already validated by AFNOR and AOAC, we have conducted extensive in-house testing to ensure that your results are correct. Using NATA's requirements, we have verified that the negative results are equivalent to AS5013.10 in this laboratory. Of course, all positive results must be confirmed culturally, but the majority of Salmonella testing results will be available the next day- at no additional cost.
To discuss your testing requirements please contact Bruce Reed.
