The sample(s) are stained with a dye, then examined under a high-power microscope (400 or 500X magnification) and 1000-times magnification by an experienced, highly-trained laboratory technologist.Mold samples are then typed and counted.

We also use spore trap (non-culturable) air sampling in order to capture and quantify a broad spectrum of fungal spores present in the air. This allows us to determine if the levels present suggest a mold problem in your home.
