Already completed testing with Ventia™? Click here to take the next step.
All you need to do is take a dust sample from bedding or carpet using the DUSTREAM® collector that is provided with the kit and apply the sample to the test. No dust handling is involved. Results are obtained within 10 minutes and color indicator lines show whether the sample contains Low, Medium or High levels of mite allergen.
The Ventia™ package contains everything needed to perform 2 tests: Dust collector, testing solution, rapid test with built-in color chart, and step-by-step instructions. All you need is a vacuum cleaner to which you can attach the DUSTREAM® collector nozzle contained in the kit. Order Ventia™.
If your first test is positive for dust mite allergen, check another site in your home. Rinse the collector and caps with tap water, dry with a paper towel, place a clean filter inside and re-test using the second test cassette. Specific actions to control dust mites and mite allergens in your home can be found at www.inbio.com/consumer. Consult your allergist or physician for further advice.
