Indoor Biotechnologies has several tests that enable consumers to check exposure to allergens that are commonly found in homes.
Many people with year-round allergies are sensitized to house dust mite allergens. Dust mites are one of the most important causes of allergy and asthma worldwide. They live in bedding, carpets and upholstered furniture and thrive in warm, humid conditions. However, not all homes contain dust mites.
You can test dust samples from beds or carpets to check for mite allergens using the Ventia™ rapid allergen test. Ventia™ will show whether dust contains high, medium or low allergen levels in 10 minutes. The Ventia™ kit contains everything you need for two tests.
For a complete allergen analysis of your home, our skilled laboratory staff can test your dust samples for eight of the most common allergens (from mites, cat, dog, rat, mouse and cockroach) using our state-of-the-art MARIA® technology. We supply easy-to-use DUSTREAM® collectors that fit most vacuum cleaners and enable a dust sample to be collected in two minutes, with no dust handling. Simply mail the samples to our laboratory and you will receive a full report on allergen levels in your home within 5-10 days.
Reducing allergen exposure is recommended by national allergy and asthma guidelines. Knowing the allergen level in your home and taking steps to reduce exposure helps to control asthma symptoms and improve your quality of life.
