Updates on Microbiological Testing for Indoor Environmental Quality Investigation – Traditional and DNA (ERMI) Methods
Presented by Dr. Wei Tang, Laboratory Director at QLAB
Original live broadcast date: August 24, 2016
Microbial sampling and testing have been one of the essential tools for indoor environmental quality investigation for different types of indoor microbial contaminations, like mold, bacteria, Legionella bacteria, and sewage materials. Many references including some guidance documents have extensive information on those topics. However, some of those have become outdated. There have also been several misunderstandings on the usages and interpretations of microbial DNA testing results, including Environmental Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI), which will be discussed in this webinar.
