Contango operates over 2,000 sq. ft of year-round pilot facilities. These are temperature, humidity, and photoperiod controlled. We also have outdoor facilities that allow for testing of cold climate and freezing conditions on the passive water treatment systems. All pilot facilities are monitored daily by specialized technologists. Each pilot-scale system is designed and built specifically for each project, ensuring that the data and optimizations achieved are relevant, reliable, and robust.
Microbiology and sequencing services are performed at Contango in our dedicated laboratories. Our scientists and technologists are equipped to work with a wide range of samples, for both genetic and growth-based assays. All processes have been standardized to ensure accurate and reproducible results. In addition to providing services to our clients, Contango has an active internal research program aimed at developing new remediation technologies and services, check out our blog for updates.
