Established in 2001, GreenWater Laboratories/CyanoLab is the only private full-service laboratory of its kind in the United States, with a strict focus on cyanobacteria/algae and the toxins they produce. Our experts work closely with our clients to provide technically advanced testing, analyses, monitoring and research - tailored to fit each of their individual needs.
Located in Palatka FL, our facilities house many different instruments used specifically for algae and cyanobacteria work. Currently, GWL utilizes inverted microscopes fitted with phase contrast optics and epifluorescence capabilities for algae/cyanobacteria identification and enumeration.
We also operate multiple high performance liquid chromatography systems in conjunction with UV/PDA, mass spectrometery (Ion Trap and Triple Quad MS Systems) and fluorescence. This allows us the specificity required to make accurate assumptions about toxins present in any given sample. We have been conducting ELISA assays for over a decade and find the additional confirmation beneficial and sometimes mandatory to our clients.
In addition to laboratory services and analytical testing, CyanoLab is also a source of commercially available purified algal toxins for research and analytical testing, such as microcystins and cylindrospermopsin.
