About Microbac

About Microbac

Yesterday

Soon after arriving in the United States in the mid-1960s, A. Warne Boyce founded Microbac with the purchase of a dairy laboratory located in Pittsburgh, PA. Since then, Microbac has grown into a diverse independent testing and measurement firm, serving clients with highly personal service and custom solutions for the environmental, life-sciences and food markets.

Today

The Microbac laboratory network exceeds 25 locations and 650 employees capable of supporting a wide range of analytical needs through microbiological, chemical, physical, microscopic, virology, radiological, and toxicology capabilities. We are committed to delivering time-sensitive, quality data and insights to support our clients' informed decision-making.

Our team of scientists and industry specialists is inspired by how measurement impacts the world in which we live. We collaborate with our clients to help ensure the performance, safety, and quality of the food we eat, our natural environment and the products we use every day.

Tomorrow

We continue our journey to build a great company. We travel this journey in partnership with our employees, clients and communities. We seek relationships over transactions, the long over the short, and the opportunity to contribute positively to the lives we touch.
