About This Test
This test collects samples from settled dust for QPCR-DNA analysis. The identification of species is possibly the most important risk and hazard tool in identifying building related illness. The ERMI identifies 26 potentially toxigenic moulds and 10 normally expected environmental species. The analysis also provides HERTSMI 2 assessments for patients undergoing treatment for Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS).
What This Kit Includes
- Swiffer (for taking the dust sample)
- Ziplock bag
- Instructions for the test, Gloves, and a Chain of Custody (which needs to be completed for our Laboratories)
Things to Note
- Our recommendation is 1 swiffer per affected room if you need to identify a specific room in the house. However, if you only want to determine the presence of mould, a sample can be taken from across multiple rooms.
Turn Around Times
Once the sample is with the laboratory we can provide either a 3 or 1 day turn around.
