Fungus Test Kit
Fungi Test Kit (also called Fungi Test Kit): Molds are types of fungi (fungus). They grow in the natural environment outside, and they can also grow inside. Tiny particles of molds are found everywhere in indoor and outdoor air. In nature, molds help break down dead materials, and can be found growing on soil, foods, plants and other items. Molds are also very common in buildings and homes. Mold needs moisture to grow. Indoors, mold growth can be found where humidity levels are high, like basements, showers, roof or plumbing leaks, HVAC systems, and more.
Molds produce microscopic cells called “spores” that are spread easily through the air. Spores can also be spread by water and insects. Live spores act like seeds, forming new mold colonies when they find the right conditions. It may cause severe health and hygiene problems to building occupants. Fungal Test Kit provides the necessary tool to assist in identifying, as well as providing concentration levels of fungi by using a swab culture technique (Bio-Vial).
Home Fungus Test Kit Identifies Fungus, and 3 More Types of Fungus if Needed
Speciation identification of three predominant types can be performed upon request for an additional fee. For pricing on Genus and Specification, please call the Lab at 727-572-4550 Ext. 301
WTI laboratory services will provide a final report. Concentration levels of fungi are reported in Colony Forming Units (CFU), and are compared to what is considered to be normal.
Once the laboratory at WTI receives the Bio-Vial sample from your home fungus test kit for analysis, your lab report will be generated and emailed within 10-14 days.
