Easy to use directions

A Growth Activating Liquid

Prove-it™ Do It Yourself

The Kit is quick and easy to use!

Mold Sampling 1a

Take a wipe sample of the suspect mold using the swab. Wipe both sides of the swab through the mold, then:

Mold Sampling 1b

Lift the top film cover and wipe the swab on the film in the pattern of an "x".

Save the swab in the enclosed locking plastic bag if you also want the mold(s) identified by the Tox-Check™ Lab.

Squeeze the activating liquid onto the bottom film, drop the cover, and press closed. Store the film in the Kit box in a room temperature location.



Example of gross contamination.

NOTE: Most molds take 3 to 7 days to grow large enough to be visible and can change colors from black to blue, grey, rust, red, yellow, orange, and brown. The black "toxic" mold (Stachybotrys) turns brown on the MoldCheck™ films.

If the film grows dozens or hundreds of "dot" colonies like this, you have confirmed a source of live mold. You've got live mold contamination. Now check your colors!

If only a sprinkling of colonies appear (5-10+) this represents background spores, not a source of contamination.
