Bed Bug Testing Services

Traditional bed bug behavioural monitoring combined with highly specific and sensitive molecular testing

All testing is performed on the Cimex lectularius bed bug species in a temperature and humidity controlled chamber. Video footage and imagery of the test can be supplied.

Our clients include manufacturers of textiles, cleaning products, travel accessories and vacuum cleaners, as well as pest management companies.

We carry out pilot studies on prototype products through to full scale studies for claim verification on established products.
