Mycometer®-surface is a versatile analytical tool for testing surfaces and bulk materials for mold contamination on-site.

The aim has been to specifically develop a method to quantify the level of mold on different building materials and surfaces as well as inside porous materials (bulk samples). The Mycometer®-surface method provides users with validated criteria for documenting and delineating the amount of fungal biomass on surfaces.

Since 1998, the method has provided users with a proven tool to assess environments rapidly with confidence.  This comppetitive advantage results in a rapid return on investment.

  • Measures spores, fragments, hyphae and no viable cells
  • analysis of up to 20 samples on-site in one hour
  • mandatory user certification ensures staff are fully trained to Mycometer test methods
  • 70 samples can be analysed per hour in lab setup with trained technician
  • differentiation of mold growth  via Mycometer-surface interpretation criteria
  • on-site analysis for retention of chain of custody
  • rapid reliable results


kit contains:
  • Timer
  • Battery-Powered Fluorometer
  • Thermometer
  • Popette, Auto-Measure
  • Sample Racks x 2
  • Travel Case
