Want Your Test Plates Analyzed?

If you would like to send your plates in for analysis, we have partnered with IMS Laboratory (Official Laboratory for the National Association of Mold Professionals), a fully accredited, full-service microbiology lab, to offer additional testing services. Please see the link below for more information on lab testing and to download and print the forms and instructions for those services. We advise to ONLY send in the test plates that grow out mold as lab analysis is an additional fee and is charged per plate.

SKU: 203-081
Contains: 6 MALT EXTRACT AGAR WITH 0.01% CHLORAMPHENICOL PLATES.
Intended Use: Malt Extract Agar is used for the isolation, cultivation and enumeration of yeasts and molds. This is a self-development test and does not come with a laboratory analysis. Each plate has expiration date printed on bottom of each plate.
Package Type: Single Product
DIRECTIONS: (Note: Detailed instructions and a results key are included with each kit.) For Air Testing: Enter room or area that you wish to test. Remove test plate from clear plastic sleeve. Take lid off test plate and place open plate on a flat surface away from walls and windows. Place lid open side down next to the test plate. Go about your activities as normal. After 1 hour, place lid back on top of test plate. Seal plate closed with tape. Wrap sealed plate in aluminum foil. Label wrapped plate with name of room or space tested and date. Place wrapped and labelled plate in a drawer or cabinet. When 5 days have elapsed since the date of testing, remove the aluminum foil to reveal results. DO NOT unseal or open test plate. Use the KEY included with the test kit to determine your results. If further diagnostics testing is needed, use one of the Environmental Mycotoxin Tests. Dispose of used test plates in outside trash receptacle. To Test Specific Items: Remove test plate from clear sleeve. Remove lid from test plate and set aside. Gently tap the item you wish to test with the plate 1-2 times. Make sure that the agar material is exposed to the item being tested when tapping. The puffs of air created from the tapping motion will cause any mold spores embedded in the item to attach to the agar material. Place lid back on test plate. Seal plate closed with tape. Wrap sealed plate in aluminum foil. Label wrapped plate with name of object tested and date. Place wrapped and labelled plate in a drawer or cabinet. When 5 days have elapsed since the date of testing, remove the aluminum foil to reveal results. DO NOT unseal or open test plate. Use the KEY included with the test kit to determine your results. Note: Each plate has an expiration date. Use before expiration date. As plates age, water will begin to condense onto the top of plate and may pool inside the plate. When you are ready to perform test, drain excess water from the plate first. Since the plates do expire, we do not accept returns for refunds.

    Easy to use. Discouraging because we had lots of mold growth but grateful the ability to test air ourselves.

    We ordered two kits, one of which was covered in condensation upon arrival. I called Customer Service to check on this and they said it should be fine. However, when we used the second (wet plates) kit to test, the results came out totally different than the first time around (essentially every single plate showed massive amounts of colonies). Now we are forced to order more kits to see if there truly are the issues that showed up. I would proceed with caution if your plates come filled with condensation. --- Reply from Micro Balance Health Products: Hi, Leah, Condensation in the plates is normal and to be expected. The plates are specially designed to culture molds, so must have the right amount of agar medium and moisture in order to properly cultivate mold spores. If your results seem different, there are a lot of variables to consider, but the plates cannot culture something that is not present. Thus, if many colonies grow, it is highly likely that mold levels are heightened. Please reach out and let us know if we can answer any additional questions about testing. We would love to assist you and will always replace any damaged plates. I hope we can help.

    I recommend this test kit as it really does find the mold. I checked all my rooms. Found no mold, except in my home office. I thus cleaned and sprayed to handle any mold. I spend a lot of time in my office. I got the MicroBalance Environmental Kit. I handled the area where it tested positive. I thought it odd as the office is next to my bathroom and my kitchen, but the test showed no mold in those rooms. Later, my neighbor who lived in the apartment below me, told me that there was a bathroom right under my office, and that they definitely had a mold problem that she was getting fixed. So, this was an accurate test. – C.D.

    I've never used an air testing kit before and wow! My husband and I wanted to know if we had mold spores in the air at our house so we set up tests in every room. We left it there for a little over an hour and some rooms we did not expect to have so many colonies show up! We also did a tap test with the carpet in our bedroom, which turned out to be really eye opening. These tests are super easy to do with thorough instructions and pictures on what to look for. Plus, they're really affordable!

    I had water damage occur in my classroom again and was exhibiting mold sensitivity responses, but needed proof there was mold since it “wasn’t visible.” I swabbed and prepped my samples ahead of time so I’d come with what I needed. So despite the mold not being visible, there was a large result from the swabs and the water damage has been remediated and my sensitivity response is gone! Will always purchase these when mold is in question.

    I'm so happy to have found your company through Instagram! I've been trying to heal all year and wondered how much mold my apartment unit might have. These petri dishes were so easy to use and a great price. Once I move, I definitely plan to buy them again to test our future home and would definitely recommend them to others. Thanks, EC3!
