Assured Bio Technology

  • The M-TRAP® is a unique air sampling cassette developed specifically for the rapid capture and analysis of airborne fungi, bacteria, and viruses using state-of-the-art DNA & RNA analysis. It embodies the next generation of capture technology for residential and occupation mold exposure assessment. The M-TRAP® excels where spore trap and agar impaction falls short —spore capture efficiency and turnaround time. The cassette is designed to follow a color-coded system. The blue striped  M-TRAP® are labeled to capture airborne fungi and bacteria. The red striped M-TRAP® are labeled to capture airborne viruses. M-TRAP® may be connected via 1/4” tubing commonly used with air sampling pumps that are currently on the market. It is also compatible with the Buck BioAire Pump and the Zefon Bio-Pump (an adapter is required for use of the Zefon Bio Pump).
    In order to submit samples using our red M-TRAP® cassette, all clients must first contact the lab to complete an account form. Any and all shipping will be processed on weekdays during hours of operation. Any item purchased after 3:30 pm EST will be processed the following business day.

  • The WhisperCare® is a continuous air monitoring system designed to test facilities for mold, bacteria and viruses using DNA & RNA analysis. With its low decibel output, your facility can continuously collect air samples without disturbing occupants from their day-to-day routine. Using a longer capturing rate increases the accuracy of your data when tracking down the source of contamination. M-TRAPS® are sold separately: Click here to purchase M-TRAPS®  
  • The HYDRO-FOG® is a commercial grade, disinfectant fogging machine capable of utilizing all water-based, FDA–registered and approved-for-fogging cleaners. With its ultrasonic homogenizers, commonly referred to as “sonicators,” and toggle-enabled heating element, the HYDRO-FOG® provides tremendous versatility and potency. The use of a sonicator rather than the common atomizer gives the HYDRO-FOG® a competitive edge, creating particles of 5 microns or less in size. Compared to atomizer foggers which typically produce particles of around 20 microns in size, the use of sonicators drastically increases surface area coverage. When fogging chemicals such as peroxide, the heating element plays its part by effectively “activating” the peroxide, increasing its potency. The HYDRO-FOG® can be used across the commercial, industrial, manufacturing, healthcare and residential sectors.

MISCELLANEOUS TESTS

  • This product was designed so that Corrosive drywall may be easily identified by the home owner. The test kit consists of 10 copper coupons for placement throughout the home over a period of 30 days. Easy to use, the copper coupons may be returned to the lab for comparison to coupons that have been corroded by known Corrosive drywall reference materials at no additional charge. The identification of corrosion, utilizing this at home method, may serve as evidence in identifying Corrosive drywall as laid out by the Consumer Product Safety Commission in their 2010 publication Interim Guidance- Identification of Homes with Corrosion from Problem Drywall.

    Test Instructions:

    Step 1– Remove copper coupons from plastic bags and place them in 10 different locations around the building/structure you are testing. Be sure to not throw the plastic bags away. Do not apply tape or any other substance to the coupons. Step 2– Wait 30 days. Make sure that the copper coupons are not disturbed/damaged. Step 3– After 30 days, collect the copper coupons with gloved hands and place each one individually back in the plastic bags they came in. Step 4– Send the coupons back to our lab and wait for your results!
