Detect large dust mite infestations early — before they trigger your allergies or cause an asthma attack — when you use this comprehensive Dust Mite Test Kit. Dust mites are tiny cream-colored insects that are invisible to the naked eye. These organisms feed on human skin flakes and make their homes in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bedcovers, clothes, stuffed toys, and other fabric-covered items.
In some people, dust mites and dust mite feces can trigger a variety of allergy symptoms as well as aggravate existing asthma conditions. Because these organisms are microscopic, it's often difficult to determine whether your allergy and/or asthma symptoms are, in fact, caused by a dust mite infestation. The only way to pinpoint the source of the problem is through professional testing. Now, you can get professional-quality results at a value price with this at-home dust mite test kit.
Dust Mite Screening Procedure
The Dust Mite Screen Check kit, manufactured by Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab), includes all the materials you need to complete a dust mite screening on your indoor surfaces. The kit features Bio-Scan 400 tape, which is used to collect a surface sample from your home. Sampling the air is made simple with step-by-step instructions and a detailed explanation on how to handle the Bio-Scan tape to get the best possible sample.
Once sampling is complete, place the collection tape in the protective plastic case and mail it to EDLab. A pre-addressed envelope is included in the test kit, and lab fees are included in the price. Within 7 to 10 business days, you'll receive the results of your home's comprehensive dust mite screening. Dust mite concentration is measured in micrograms. Depending on your results, you can then take appropriate steps to remove dust mites from your environment.
