Quantitative detection of Actino microbial content.

Response time: 5-7 days Response time.

Sample limitations: Swiffer fabric sampling powder: we require a minimum of 10 mg of powder; If you can see a lot of dust in Swiffer, it will be fine.

  1. Avoid taking samples of surfaces that have been hot.
  2. Avoid surfaces that have been exposed to biocides, for example, chemicals that contain chlorine.
  3. Do not sample surfaces where there is drywall dust or clay dust.


The most frequent species of bacteria found in buildings damaged by water are Actino this is the type of bacteria that produces biotoxins similar to mycotoxin in the mold. In general, the biotoxins of bacteria by weight and mass are much more important than, say, mycotoxins. The test is based on the microbial identification of all bacteria in the sample. The Actino test was developed by selecting the 40 main species of Actino in the sample to create a score for Building-related Disease (BRI) situation.

The species included in the score have been reported in multiple studies that link them to BRI.

Score System:

Score Score Range Interpretation
Q1 9 or below Indicative of a Healthy Building
Q2 Between 10 to 15 Further investigation needed
Q3 Greater than 15 Suggestive for Building-Related Illness
