What is a Fungal ViaScan?

A ViaScan is capable of identifying living fungi and can be applied to swab, bulk, air, or water samples in various settings including residential, commercial, and healthcare spaces. ViaScan is valuable during post-remediation assessments, helping evaluate the viability of remaining mold spores and the potential for regrowth.

Samples must be shipped to the lab overnight to ensure viability is preserved

DNA based species identification is available for an additional charge

7-14 Day Turnaround based on the time required for sample incubation

Collecting ViaScan Samples


Air sampling requires an air pump, plate medium and Andersen impaction stainless steel plates. Air is pulled onto the sterile plate medium and the plate is shipped to the laboratory for incubation and analysis. Differential media may be ordered to help pinpoint certain fungi in question.

Swab Samples

Collection is similar to a MoldScan. Swab by touching a suspected colony with a sterile swab. Another method is by swabbing a measurable area (such as a one-square inch section) with the sterile swab. Then record the area swabbed on the chain of custody.


Materials such as carpeting may be sent into the laboratory and analyzed for viable fungi or mold. Simply place a suspected contaminated bulk material in a zippered bag and send it to the laboratory. The analyst will take it from there.

Water Samples

Simply fill up a 250 ml sterile polypropylene bottle with water from the source in question and ship the sample overnight to the laboratory for analysis. Ensure containers are dry, water tight and packaged with appropriate insulation.
