What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality is a term that describes indoor air and its relationship to the occupants regarding potential exposure to harmful contaminants. The EPA reports that typical airborne contaminant concentrations are 2 to 5 times greater indoors when compared to outdoors. With most people spending more than 90% of their time indoors, exposure to these pollutants can represent a serious health risk.

Micro-Organisms in the Air

Bioaerosols too small to be seen with the naked eye represent a variety of contaminants that are suspended in air. These contaminants include a wide range of fungi, bacteria, and more that can have a multitude of negative health effects.

The Home Diagnostics Sampler

Home Diagnostics provides a cost-effective, easy to use air sampler to test for viable contaminants. Home Diagnostics 2% malt extract plates are specifically designed to culture and grow fungi. The culture plates can be used in conjunction with the Home Diagnostics Sampler or may be used alone as an HVAC (heating/ventilation/air-conditioning) test (see "Products" section of this website for HVAC sampling instructions).

Home Diagnostics is especially pleased to announce our ongoing affiliation with Mycotech Biological, Inc (MBI) as our one and only choice for laboratory analysis. MBI is a nationally recognized laboratory that has been in business since 1987.
