What iincubation method is recommended

Asked by polo January 4, 2020
1
Answer

Polo, If there is no mold present within 48 hours, re-check the dish at 72 hours and 96 hours to be sure that no slow growing mold were overlooked. If mold growth is present after the incubation period, you may send the petri dish to our lab for analysis on the type of mold present. If no mold is present after 96 hours then no mold was detected. Incubation period is 48, 72, and 96 hours, which means having the petri dish tape, on a level surface, and in room temperature.

Mold Armor Do it yourself
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Wow, The do it at home, Mold Armor really lets you test your air quality, I got more then one to cover more area. In one area I removed visible mold and put it in the Petri dish and sent it in to be tested more thoroughly. One in a area I suspect there is mold I did the at home test witch is very easy, just follow the easy to do directions.

Easy DIY
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Do it yourself Mold Test Kit was easy and quick. Easy and simple instructions. Kit contained everything that was needed to complete the test. Included a shipping envelope for expert testing. I felt safe using the test kit and I trust the results.

The product appears to do what is advertised. The challenge occurred when I sent the petri dish to the lab for testing to determine what specific typ of mold we have in the apartment. That was approximately two weeks ago and I still haven't received any response from the lab. This is troublesome because they advertise that once I paid the $40 per petri dish I could expect a response within two to three days after they receive it. Like I said its been over 14 days since I mailed it 9ut. The post office said it takes three to five days for our mail to go from one location to another.

Provides a straight forward way to have suspected substance(s) professionally analyzed. I understand the importance of comparing ambient exterior levels to interior levels so perhaps including 2 collection devices in 1 kit or reducing the lab fee by the cost of 1 kit if both are sent to lab for analysis would provide incentive for more kits being tested.

Be patient
I have suspected mold in my bathroom. I’ve been sick in and off for months. A friend of mine mentioned it could be mold from a previous leak causing my illnesses. This took 3-4 days to show significant results. But it clearly shows the growth of black mold. I since put a test in another part of my home. It has also begun to show the signs of black mold spores in the air. I have a mold expert coming to the house tomorrow to assess the issue deeper. I was able to show this test to my landlord to expedite the urgency for further inspection. I recommend this product!!
