Microbiological analysis

Man is cleaning.

Building material samples collected by customers are analysed with a cultivation method in the Laboratory of environmental microbiology at THL.

The concentrations and taxonomy of microbes in the samples are determined by using an accredited method that is in accordance with the Housing Health Decree and the application guidelines issued in the said decree. The information provided in the report to the customer includes the microbial concentrations and an assessment of whether the results of the microbial analysis indicate microbial growth in the sample.
