Mold Testing: Surface Samples

1-Media fungi surface culture (Incl. Asp spp.)
Multiple dilutions of the sample are prepared and plated onto a broad-spectrum fungal media (MEA) and incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to genus (species for Aspergillus) of all fungi present and quantification to cfu/unit.  More details...
1-Media fungi surface culture full (Pen&Clad genus)
Multiple dilutions of the sample are prepared and plated onto a broad-spectrum fungal media (MEA) and incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to genus for Cladosporium and Penicillium, and identification to species for all other fungal colonies. Quantification is reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
1-Media fungi surface culture full speciation
Multiple dilutions of the sample are prepared and plated onto a broad-spectrum fungal media (MEA) and incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to species for all fungal colonies. Quantification is reported as cfu/unit.  More details...
2-Media fungi surface culture (Incl. Asp spp.)
Multiple dilutions of the sample are prepared and plated on Malt Extract Agar (MEA) and Dichloran (18%) Glycerol Agar (DG18); incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to genus (species for Aspergillus) of all fungi present and quantification to cfu/unit.  More details...

3-Media fungi surface culture (Incl. Asp. spp.)
Multiple dilutions of the sample are prepared and plated on Malt Extract Agar (MEA), Dichloran (18%) Glycerol Agar (DG18), and Cellulose Agar (CEL); incubated for a designated amount of time at a specified temperature range. Analysis includes identification to genus (species for Aspergillus) of all fungi present and quantification to cfu/unit.  More details...

Direct microscopic exam (Qualitative)
Samples for this service are analyzed at various magnifications under light microscopy. The main purpose of the analysis is to visually estimate the presence of any fungal growth in the sample and subsequently identify any fungal growth that is detected to Genus or relevant group. Other particulates and other fungal spores not representing fungal growth are also assessed qualitatively.  More details...
Dust characterization
This service provides a rough estimation and general categorization of the particulates detected. The analyst visually estimates the area percentage of a given particulate category relative to the total area of all particulates detected.  More details...
Quantitative spore count direct exam
Analysis includes identification to genus or group of all fungi present, quantification to spores/cm2, and a general assessment of background debris.  More details...
Wood decay analysis
In this analysis, wood is evaluated for degrees of degradation. Wood is macroscopically and microscopically evaluated to assess the extent to which fungi have contributed to decay. This analysis is helpful for cases in which decay must be quantified and described. The results are provided as a narrative.  More details...
