• Analyze fungi from air, surface, and bulk samples.
  • Identify fungal spores by culture to a genus level. Common Aspergillus colonies are identified to species level. Counts for yeasts are also provided.
  • Fungal air direct exam (spore trap analysis) includes spore counts, spore identification to genus level or characterization of non-specified spore groups such as Basidiospores, Ascospores, etc., and a sample debris rating. 100% of the sample is analyzed unless spore counts must be estimated due to high levels of debris and/or spores.
  • Fungal surface direct exam (tape lift analysis) includes spore identification, detection quantity, and debris rating.
