THE APPLICATION OF THE TECHNOLOGY IS VERY VERSATILEAND CAN BE USED TO MEASURE FUNGI OR BACTERIA IN ALMOST ALL ENVIRONMENTS.
THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
The Mycometer technology is used to determine the level of fungi and bacteria on surfaces of building materials, wood, painted surfaces, concrete, gypsum board, coatings, render, ceramic and fiberboard tiles, plastic, furniture, textiles, leather goods.
It can be used to determine the level of fungi inside porous building materials
Fungal levels can be determined inside porous materials such as insulation materials, concrete, and other cementitious materials.
Levels of fungi or of total allergens (pollen, fungi, dust mites, dander, insect parts and other) can be determined in the indoor air, industrial air, and the air in waste treatment plants.
FOOD AND AGRICULTURE
Fungal and bacterial levels can also be determined in powders and raw materials such as fertilizer, compost, soil, grain and in liquids such as fruit juice as well as fermented milk products such as yogurt. Another application is early detection of fungal contamination on crop leaves.
CULTURAL ARTIFACTS AND COATINGS
Fungal and bacterial levels can also be determined on delicate surfaces such as paintings, sculpture, books leather goods, textiles, and paper documents to determine level of damage and efficacy of restoration cleaning. Fungal deterioration of coatings and other surface products such as paint and sealants can be determined to inform product development, and early detection during weathering.
