Like our customers, Symbio Laboratories is committed to providing top-tier service to ensure the safety of the environment and Australian public.

One of the ways in which we proudly meet this commitment is by providing high quality testing of phytoplankton, or algae, and assisting major water authorities such as Seqwater monitor Australia’s waterways for cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), ensuring they are safe to enjoy.

However, there are many organisations besides water authorities that should monitor algal blooms.

Businesses monitoring water storages with the potential for exposure to, or consumption of, phytoplankton (algal) blooms need to ensure that their monitoring and reporting is accurate and up-to-date.

Industries this applies to include:

  • Mines/ Coal Seam Gas,
  • Power Stations,
  • Food and Beverage Producers,
  • Construction, and
  • Agriculture

As an Australian Owned and Operated company, Symbio Laboratories proudly provides in-house testing of phytoplankton (algae), and supports major organisations in keeping these waterways safe by providing first rate testing and analysis.

In addition to providing our clients with appropriate materials to correctly bottle and submit their algae samples, our team conducts the labour intensive process of identifying and counting algal species, and helping to detect dangerous blooms such as the harmful blue-green algae.
