Indoor Allergen Testing Lab Services
Indoor allergens from dust mites, cockroaches, rodents and pets (including cats and dogs) are known to cause allergic reactions and respiratory disease in sensitive people at residential and occupational settings. As leader in the indoor air quality industry, EMLab P&K has been supporting allergen testing services on settled house dust for decades. In addition, we can assist with your environmental air monitoring projects to address laboratory animal allergies (mouse and rat).
What is MARIA® technology?
The Multiplex Array for Indoor Allergens (MARIA®) is one of the best validated and most routinely used immunoassay in allergy research, diagnosis and allergy-related quality control in various industries. It can provide accurate exposure levels for all the common allergens in the home in a single test: dust mite allergens, cat, dog, mouse, rat and cockroach and has improved sensitivity and accuracy over the traditional Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) method. MARIA® testing has a high quantitative reliability and provides a sensitive method for the detection of allergens in dust samples. MARIA® tests are a very popular choice for the evaluation of various research and diagnostic targets.
