Our Team and Mission

Woodhouse Laboratories is an owner-operated sterilizer spore testing laboratory founded in 2017 in Ferndale, WA. We are three dedicated scientists with over 20 years of laboratory management, microbiology, and environmental health and safety experience. We started this laboratory because we worked in labs which used or provided sterilizer spore testing services but we were consistently disappointed with the options available.  We wanted testing to be affordable, accurate, and fast.

We created Woodhouse Labs with these core values in mind:  Monitoring should be easy for clients to do, client service and test results should be provided instantly, we will never compromise our level of service in favor of volume, and most importantly we will always remember that lives depend on our quality of service.
