Microbiology Laboratory


The primary focus of the Office of Pesticide Program's Microbiology Laboratory is the development of methods to evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobial products with public health claims – products used to kill or suppress the growth of pathogenic microorganisms on inanimate objects and surfaces. Applied research on the development and standardization of laboratory methods used to determine the efficacy of antimicrobials is a key priority for the OPP Microbiology Laboratory. The laboratory is instrumental in advancing the science of antimicrobial product testing and provides technical expertise to standard-setting organizations and various agency stakeholder groups. The laboratory provides support to other agency offices on Homeland Security initiatives and is registered with the CDC/USDA Select Agent Program.
