|Just Testing the
Air for Airborne Mold Spores Is Inadequate
To Know the Mold Truth About a
"Airborne fungus measurements fail to take into
consideration non-airborne mould contamination such as mould contamination
in dust or surfaces (often visible to the naked eye) and mycotoxins in
air, dust, and on surfaces. Therefore, testing the settled dust for fungi
and mycotoxins is often recommended. In order to secure a more complete
assessment, therefore, it is often recommended that airborne measurements
be supplemented by testing for moulds and mycotoxins in already-settled
dust or air."---Luke Curtis, MS, CIH, Allan Lieberman, MD, Martha Stark,

Mold Growth Lab
Grow, count, and identify only living mold spores in your self-collected
Mold Growth Lab surface samples, air samples, and bulk physical samples
worldwide, both before and after mold remediation with mold growth Petri
lab dishes from Mold Growth Lab.
Mold Growth Lab provides you with easy-to-follow
mold testing steps to use both Mold Growth Lab surface samplers and
Petri lab dishes to collect possible mold growth on any surface, in room
air, in the outward air flow from heating/cooling air ducts, and on mold
growth on building material physical specimens.
You can self-observe the lab dishes for 7 days to know: (1) is it mold?
(2) is the mold alive? (3) how many mold colonies grew in the 7 day
observation period. Only living mold spores will grow in the special mold
food habitat inside the Petri lab dishes. Each living mold spore will grow
a separate, distinguishable, countable, and identifiable mold colony. Dead
mold spores will grow NO mold colonies.
After the 7 day culture growth time period, each lab dish can be analyzed
by our partner mold analysis lab to identify and quantify the mold
colonies that have grown during that 7 days, and then provide a written
report with such mold species identification and quantification.
