EnviroBiomics Home Test Kit offers a comprehensive solution, including Actino, Endotoxin, and ERMI tests, empowering users to assess and mitigate potential health risks associated with bacterial and mold exposure in their indoor environment.
EnviroBiomics: DIY ERMI, SM-AEE Actino, Endotoxin
Introducing the EnviroBiomics Home Test Kit – a comprehensive and user-friendly solution for assessing indoor air quality and potential health risks associated with bacterial and mold exposure. This kit includes three essential tests: Actino, Endotoxin, and ERMI, designed to provide you with a detailed analysis of your indoor environment.
Actino: Unveiling Hidden Bacterial Threats
Actino bacteria, commonly found in water-damaged buildings, produce biotoxins similar to mycotoxins in mold. Unlike mycotoxins, the weight and mass of bacterial biotoxins are often more substantial. The Actino test identifies the 40 main species of Actino in a sample, creating a Building-related Disease (BRI) score. Developed based on studies linking these species to BRI, this test empowers you with insights into potential health risks associated with bacterial contamination.
Endotoxin: Understanding Gram-Negative Bacterial Impact
Derived from the cell walls of Gram-Negative bacteria (GNB), endotoxins pose health risks through inhalation or ingestion. Both viable and non-viable GNB contribute to endotoxin exposure, making it crucial to assess their presence. This test analyzes the endotoxin levels in your environment, offering valuable information for those exposed to elevated concentrations, such as in water-damaged buildings or industrial settings.
ERMI: Assessing Mold and Indoor Air Quality with Precision
Developed by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Environmental Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI) provides an objective and standardized assessment of mold and indoor air quality. The ERMI, coupled with a HERTSMI-2 analysis, predicts the moldiness of homes based on dust samples. By comparing your ERMI results to a national database, you gain insights into the potential risk of indoor mold growth and associated health effects.
Upon purchase, you’ll receive a HERTSMI-2 along with the ERMI, enhancing the accuracy of your assessment. The ERMI’s development involved a comprehensive study across 1,096 homes in the US, creating a national Relative Moldiness Index (RMI) Scale. By analyzing concentrations of mold species, the ERMI distinguishes between “moldy homes” and “reference homes,” enabling you to make informed decisions about your indoor environment.
Ensure the health and well-being of your loved ones by taking control of your indoor environment. With the EnviroBiomics Home Test Kit, you gain the knowledge needed to create a healthier and safer living space.
