Description
 

If you or your doctor suspect mold as the cause of your health problems, find out by testing your environment (home, office, car, school, etc.) with our affordable and easy-to-use screening plates. Our test is based on culturing test samples with petri dishes, a technique that has been reliably used by microbiologists and other professionals for well over a century.


This DIY test kit contains 5 lab-quality Malt Extract Agar test plates. The plates are used to culture the widest possible array of molds. These plates require one hour of exposure to the environment for an air test for a specific room. To test items, like upholstered furnishings, textiles, or carpets, simply open the plate, and tap it 3 times on the item to be tested. (This is referred to as a TAP test.) After the TAP test or exposure period, the plates are to be sealed, covered, and stored for 5 days in a warm dry place. During this incubation period, any mold captured in the plate will grow into small, round colonies of fungus of varying sizes. Each colony is to be counted. Different shapes and colors indicate multiple mold species.


Once the colonies are counted, you can use this results key to determine the severity of your mold problem:


For the Air Test:
1- 2 colonies: Low risk of inflammation
3 - 5 colonies: Moderate risk of inflammation for low sensitivity sufferers. High risk of inflammation for severe sufferers.
6 - 10 colonies: High risk of inflammation to all suffers.
10 - Too Numerous to Count (TNC): Risk to both sufferers and non-sufferers for autoimmune diseases.



For the TAP Test:
2- 4 colonies: low risk of inflammation
5 - 7 colonies: Moderate risk of inflammation for low sensitivity sufferers. High risk of inflammation for severe sufferers.
8 - 12 colonies: High risk of inflammation to all suffers.
13 - Too Numerous to Count (TNC): Risk to both sufferers and non-sufferers for autoimmune diseases.

I can't believe my eyes!!! March 8, 2017
Reviewer: Paul Scheib from Roswell, GA United States  
I was living in an apartment with my wife and two children.  We all  had headaches that would not go away ever sense moving in. So I tested the air and the carpet for mold.  

The air came back a little above normal, but the carpet was two numerous to count.  I could not even see through the plate.  What was worse was the mold was almost all black which is a sign of Mycotoxins.   That explains the headaches.

I was able to treat the carpet and air with the EC3 products to manage the situation until I could get my family out of the apartment.  

I recommend these plates to everybody who thinks they could have a mold problem.
