Who We Are

Microchem Laboratory was founded in 1988 by Dr. Norman Miner, a respected microbiologist and talented formulator.  Historically Microchem Laboratory focused on the research, development, and testing of high-level disinfectants.  In 2014, Dr. Miner's lab was acquired by Dr. Benjamin Tanner, founder of Antimicrobial Test Labs and Cosmetic Test Labs.  In 2015, the three laboratories were combined under the Microchem Laboratory name, creating one organization with deep technical expertise across a broad array of testing services.   The laboratory offers testing in compliance with current Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) regulations.  Clients are welcome to tour the lab, observe studies, and audit the lab's quality system.

The lab is staffed by a capable, friendly group of scientists, mostly microbiologists.  We understand what our clients need:  Fairly priced testing services, done accurately and reported quickly.
