The question that every home owner should ask before undertaking expensive remediation is, “What mold do I have?” Most molds are harmless in the normal quantities found in homes unless individuals happen to be allergic to them. There are, however, a small number of toxigenic molds that they should be concerned about. These toxigenic molds produce Mycotoxins that are known to be harmful to humans and can cause a variety of medical conditions, including cancer.
The EMMA test uses sensitive molecular detection technology to look for the presence of 10 of the most toxigenic molds. It determines their presence and determines their relative abundance. EMMA also tests directly for 15 of the most poisonous Mycotoxins using its patented Mycotoxin detection test. Testing is simple, only requiring small amounts of dust or material from AC or heater filters. Instructions are provided with the pre-paid return kit that is sent to you upon order.
