Hi Everyone,

The deal is the product is at the beginning stages of being shipped to Europe but they want us to test for these organism before being shipped. We can test them since we have the proper materials but my questions is if we need to be certified? or have a specific certification just in case they need one. 
Also if anyone knows how to go about certifying personal in a lab since we have in-house Microbiology lab.
