Treatability Testing

Prior to making a decontamination proposal, we undertake a strict verification regimen to ensure effectiveness of the biopreparation.

Service Description

Before undertaking decontamination work, BioRangers performs its Treatability Testing to confirm that its biopreparation will be effective for the task at hand.

To do this, we have the customer send us a sample of the soil or water to be decontaminated. We then test the Oppenheimer Formula complex biopreparation on the sample to confirm that it will be effective in breaking down the contaminants present. Performing tests ahead of time allows us to propose the most effective remediation approach. Testing requires little time and cost, and we invite those considering remediation to let us assist in determining whether it is a practical option.

Swift Test Results Test results are returned 1-3 weeks after sample is received.

Greater Reliability Confirming biopreparation effectiveness ahead of time enables remediation work customers can rely on.

Economical Testing By providing us with a sample of the soil or water to be decontaminated, customers can have us perform remediation testing for little cost.

Service Flow

Once we receive a sample of the soil or water to be decontaminated, we perform decomposition testing with the Oppenheimer Formula. Results are reported back to customers within 1-3 weeks of our receiving the sample. If test results indicate the biopreparation was effective on the sample tested, we put forth a concrete remediation plan.
