What's New

06/14/2007 Is there a standardized, objective method available to quantify the indoor mold burden in homes? An article entitled “ Benefits of Applying Moldiness Index Abound“, appearing in the issue of June 2007 (volume 8, Issue 8) of Indoor Environment Connections, Dr. King-Teh Lin of Mycometrics LLC prepares to answer this question with a look at the Environmental Relative Moldiness Index or ERMI. He lists the advantages of using mold-specific quantitative polymerase chain reaction, the DNA-based method of the mold analyses, over traditional air sampling, and provides an overview of how to use this new method.

05/21/2007 Would like to know what is the ERMI?, Why develop ERMI?, How to use the ERMI?, and its association with clinical studies. Drs. King-Teh Lin and Ritchie Shoemaker will bring you the basic view and understanding of the ERMI with the article entitled “Inside Indoor Air Quality: Environmental Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI)”, appearing in the May/June 2007 issue (Vol. 26, No. 3) of Filtration News.

02/02/2007 An abstract entitled “First Report of Antimicrobial Efficacy of Novel Ocular Anti-Infective/Anti-Inflammatory CLSA_1506: In Vitro Activity Against Common Bacterial, Fungal and Viral Pathogens” has been accepted as a poster presentation at 2007 Annual meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), May 6- May 10, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The contributed authors are Dr. Bo Liang, CLS Pharmaceuticals, Inc., New York, NY, and Dr. King-Teh Lin, Mycometrics, LLC., Monmouth Junction, NJ.

01/05/2007 Mycometrics LLC is pleased to announce that it is now an AIHA accredited environmental microbiology laboratory. Mycometrics LLC has fulfilled the requirements of the AIHA (The American Industrial Hygiene Association) Laboratory Quality Assurance Programs (LQAP), thereby, conforming to the ISO/IEC 17025:1999 international standard, General Requirements for the Competence of Testing and Calibration Laboratory. The Laboratory ID is 180073. The scope of accreditation can be reviewed by the AIHA website.

08/21/2006 Mycometrics LLC announces the new development of a customized AccuDust™ dust sampling kit to help sample the dust for the downstream application, the Environmental Relative Moldiness Index analysis or called ERMIsm. ERMI is a simple but powerful tool that can help determine the relative mold burden of the indoor environments. It combines the scientific research, DNA-based PCR technology and the national survey called American Healthy Home Survey (AHHS) by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

09/28/2005 To read about how PCR can be used to identify and analyze mold problems, see our article entitled "Got Mold? Analysis via DNA Quantification" by Drs. Steve Vesper & King-Teh Lin, appearing in the Facility Safety Management Magazine, Oct 2005 issue. Got Mold? The question has become more and more relevant to many industries, but trying to answer this question can be difficult.

08/22/2005 AIHA EMPAT Results are available. Our results show that we obtained the highest score (100%) on both tests, thereby demonstrating our analytical proficiency. More details...

07/20/2005 Mycometrics initiates collaboative QPCR study with USEPA. We are excited to be a USEPA-designated PCR contractor for this project. We are pleased to be taking part in this nationwide study.

05/09/2005 Mycometrics obtains USEPA license (#352-05) for mold QPCR.
