MicroBioCA LABS has been providing microbiological testing services for mold and other indoor air quality (IAQ) parameters since 2003.  Our Microbiology division in Texas is accredited under the AIHA-EMLAP program for the analysis of indoor air quality samples.



Non-Viable Mold

Non-viable analysis by direct microscopy is the most widely used method to identify mold spores.

  • Surface
  • Airborne
  • Tape Lift, Bulk, Swab
  • Sporetrap, Air O Cell/Micro S

Viable Mold

Viable analysis using standard mycology practices provides a more accurate identification of mold spores.  Viable samples require time (5-10 days) for cultures to mature enough to be accurately identified.

  • Bulk
  • Airborne
  • Surface
  • Bulk, Dust
  • Andersen Sampler
  • Swab/RODAC contact plate

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)

IAQ analysis can be performed for dust characterization, allergens, and a number of other IAQ contaminants.

  • Dust
  • Allergens
  • Bacteria
  • Characterization
  • Mite and Animal
  • Gram stain/Coliform/Speciation
