Antimicrobial Test Laboratories Emerges as Leading Provider of Virus Testing Services
Date:4/10/2013

Round Rock, TX (PRWEB) April 10, 2013

Antimicrobial Test Laboratories (ATL) - a contract microbiology lab founded in 2006 by microbiologist Dr. Benjamin Tanner - has experienced rapid growth of its virus testing services to match its expanding reputation for rapid study turnarounds, reproducible results, and attentive customer service.

Virus testing is unique within the laboratory because the presence of viruses before and after treatment with antimicrobials is signaled to ATL scientists by infection and damage to mammalian host cells, rather than growth of bacterial or fungal colonies on agar plates.

“ATL has invested considerable resources to build and maintain the sterile cell cultures needed to propagate and detect viruses for antimicrobial efficacy studies,” said ATL president and founder Benjamin Tanner, Ph.D. “It requires scientific focus and expertise to conduct virological assays in a consistent, reproducible fashion.”

ATL's virology/cell culture unit is directed by Dr. Luisa Ikner, a microbiologist with several peer-reviewed scientific publications and years of virology experience. The laboratory's 15,000+ square foot state-of-the-art facility in Round Rock, near Austin, Texas accommodates the growing demand for its virus testing, and enables it to perform fully-compliant Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) antimicrobial testing for EPA and FDA.

“It has been rewarding for me to see the companies that rely on Antimicrobial Test Laboratories for bacterial and fungal testing put their products to the test against important viral pathogens such as influenza A virus, rhinovirus, and the EPA-mandated human norovirus surrogate, feline calicivirus,” Dr. Ikner added.

ATL benefits from a highly-qualified staff - many of them authors of, or past participants
