Ensuring the safety of potable water requires that the levels of disease causing microorganisms be reduced below levels that cause human infections, and that test procedures be carried out to ensure drinking water does not serve as a conduit of disease transmission. Nova’s team of Microbiologists and Medical Technicians work diligently to improve public health through the combined practice of environmental testing and laboratory medicine. Nova specializes in non-clinical testing services to determine the safety and effectiveness of medical devices, compound pharmaceuticals, and health and beauty products.Nova provides GLP Microbiology Testing to some of the largest pharmaceutical, medical device, and consumer products manufacturers in the world.
Our work includes evaluating novel compounds and medical devices for antimicrobial efficacy including resistant strains of microorganisms such as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Vancomycin-resistant Enterococci (VRE).Nova is one of the first independent laboratories to receive NARSA approval. Nova is now a NARSA registered laboratory and can access the central repository of isolates for investigative studies. NARSA is responsible for tracking and procuring staphylococcal isolates (including S. aureus and the coagulase-negative staphylococci) with reduced susceptibility to vancomycin (MIC's > 4 mg/ml) for inclusion into a central repository (NARSA Repository).
