Testing for Dangerous Mold in Home and Office




Realtime Lab (RTL) is a certified clinical laboratory specializing in the testing of indoor environments to determine if the inhabitants are being exposed to molds or mycotoxins, and clinical tests that determine which toxins and how much are entering the body.

According to RTL Associate Laboratory Director Dr. Shalini Muralidhar, the mycotoxins that Realtime Labs tests for include the top dozen or so that negatively affect humans. Some cause identifiable diseases or health problems, some weaken the immune system without producing symptoms, some act as allergens or irritants, some have no known effect on humans and some are lethal.

One product from RTL is an environmental mold and mycotoxin assessment (EMMA) test for the home or office environment. It is purchased online and mailed to the consumer that, after swiping dust samples, mails it back. Results are received in about 14 days.

RTL also offers clinical tests that utilize urine to determine the degree to which mycotoxins are present in the body. While some states require the clinical tests be administered by a medical doctor, there are currently 26 states where consumers can do it themselves.
