The Airborne Allergens Test Kit helps identify indoor air
The Airborne Allergens Test Kit helps identify and provide concentration levels for
molds, pollen, dust mites
(intact), skin cells, insect parts, fibers such as fiberglass, and more.
- Quick and easy to use
- Includes sample collection device for 1 surface sampling location
- Report emailed in PDF Format in approximately 3-5 days from receipt
- Same samples used by professionals
The air we breathe indoors constantly has millions of microscopic particulates
(particles) of various types floating around. Everything we breathe will
eventually fall to a surface. Some particles are relatively heavy in nature, and
will settle on various surfaces quicker than others. For example, the air you’re
breathing today may not be the same as what you were breathing last month, last
week, or even a few days ago. Some of these particulate types can cause adverse health issues that can be
allergenic or toxic in nature. Common allergic symptoms include eye irritation, coughing, sneezing, respiratory issues, headache, lethargy,
symptoms, tight chest, or dizziness. The Airborne Allergens Test Kit is designed to provide detailed concentration levels of multiple
types of pollutants that can be found on strategic surface locations in the home
or workplace. The Airborne Allergens Test Kit is ideal for allergy sufferers, asthma
patients, clean room evaluations, and more.
Suggested Sampling Locations:
- Return Air Grille: When sampling in a home or office that has a
central air conditioning or ventilation system, the return air grille is
usually the best possible place to collect a sample because it works like a
natural air pump as it sucks in the air you breathe to be filtered and
re-circulated. As the air is being pulled into the system, many air
particles will be impacted on the frame of the grille, and can be collected
- Air Supply Vent: If you believe the problem may be originating
inside the air handler or ventilation system, unscrewing an air supply vent
and collecting a sample from the duct can be beneficial.
- Dust Collection: Dust is a great option for sample collection
because it has a magnetic charge that draws in many of the air particles as
they come close to it.
- Visible Growth: If you see something growing on a hard surface
and think it may be mold but you’re not sure, the Airborne Allergens Test Kit
can be used to collect a sample for detailed analysis.
The final lab report
is included in the cost of the Airborne Allergens Test Kit. This report will show
detailed information for each pollutant identified as measured in Counts/cm²,
and will have guidelines for what is considered to be a normal manageable level,
as compared to total levels of each pollutant found . Once the lab receives your
sample for analysis, your lab report will be generated and will typically be emailed
directly to you within 3-5 business days.
