Air spore trap samples are taken using a Zeflon Bio - Pump and Air - O - Cel Spore Trap Cassettes.
Exactly 75 Liters of air is drawn through the cassette and the airborne spores are collected. The
cassettes are then sent to Hayes Microbial Laboratory ( an Accredited Lab ) for Analysis. The collected
spores are Identified and Quantified. An Exterior sample must be taken for a baseline to compare spore counts. By comparing the inside spore counts with the exterior spore counts a determination as to
weather there is elevation and to what degree can be made.
Tape Lift Sampling is performed to identify growth that is present on surfaces. A sanitized tape is used to lift the surface growth then it is attached to a sanitized glass slide and placed in a sanitized container. The container is sent to a Laboratory for microbial analysis. This analysis tells the type of surface growth that is present.
The cost for Air spore trap and Tape lift samples is $175.00 to take the samples and send them to the Lab Plus $75.00 per sample.
This includes a Free Inspection and a 24 Hour result turn around. A minimum of 2 air spore trap samples because there must be an exterior baseline sample.
