Passive Allergen Chamber Study (Ref SP337)

 

Objective
To evaluate the degree of anti-house dust mite activity, dust mite accumulation and dust mite removal properties in a long-term testing environment for a wide variety of products including textiles, cleaning agents, repellants and appliances.

Test Description
Bespoke tests are carried out to suit the client’s needs, examining different time points. Test and control specimens are inoculated with the test organism and nutrients. After the required period of incubation in dedicated chambers, the dust mites are recovered from the specimens and analysed by heat extraction to measure live house dust mite counts or ELISA to measure the level of allergen. Results are expressed as per cent reduction on the treated sample versus the untreated control.

Customer Benefit
The data generated by this test provides a good measurement of the effectiveness of anti-dust mite treatment on a breeding mite colony. We can also supply image and video footage of the test.
