How it works

At your job site

Choose locations

On site, you’ll be collecting a control sample from the outside.

This will serve as the basis for determining what comes from the home itself and what is in the ambient air already.

Then you’ll sample at least 2 locations within the home, ideally where dampness or mold is suspected or at risk.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

Take samples

Simply press on the air sample cassette to the Sporecyte air sampling pump, setting it in the desired location.

A press of the button will begin the sampling process.

When completed, remove the cassette, replace the protective film, and move on to the next location.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

Mail in the samples

Once you’re done sampling, place the air sampling cassettes into the FedEx Pak, complete and include a chain of custody form (available in the Pro Resources section) and affix the prepaid return label that we included with your supplies.

Drop it off at the nearest FedEx dropbox and you’re all set! You can expect your report the day after we receive your samples.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

At Sporecyte

We digitize the samples

When we receive your air sample cassettes or surface sample tape/swabs, we remove the glass slide containing the air sample, and digitally scan it using whole slide image scanners that contain powerful microscope lenses.

This produces the digital images that we send to the AI.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

We perform the
AI analysis

We then scan the entire sample using a deep machine learning algorithm, identifying and counting mold spores and air particulates

Our algorithms are taught using hundreds of thousands of images that industry experts have identified.

It’s like having multiple mycologist experts working for every one of your samples all at once.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

We generate the report

Once we have analyzed all of the samples in your job, we compare the indoor samples with the outdoor sample, and generate a Mold Elevation Level indicator, (and if it’s a surface sample, a Mold Growth indicator).

We then select several actual images from the sample and include them in the report, along with recommendations for the home owner.

For the first time ever, mold screening is not only affordable for your clients, but enables you to earn much more than you could with current methods.

Not your average mold testing

Traditional method

Sporecyte method

Can cost up to $300 for laboratory costs alone for a standard job.

Just $99 for lab costs for a standard 3-sample job

3-day turnaround time is standard. Same-day results are prohibitively expensive, if available at all.

Standard next-day turnaround time. Same-day results are also available.

Typically only 30% of samples are analyzed because manual analysis is so time consuming.

Sporecyte analyzes 100% of samples in just minutes thanks to our AI algorithm.

Reports are purely data driven, with little to no consideration for ease of interpretation.

Our PDF report includes representative graphs, images and even recommendations.

Limited or no reporting on air particulates

We report on over ten of the most commonly encountered air particulates.

World-leading AI: The
future of mold testing

Sporecyte is part of a larger company that is developing cutting-edge AI-powered solutions for the veterinarian and human health markets.

Using the same techniques as the ones used for Sporecyte’s mold and air particulate test,
Techcyte is creating software solutions for laboratories and hospitals around the world
that help improve patient outcomes and save lives.

The impact that this technology is having is major, and will shape the future of mold testing.

How do we use AI?

The technology we use is based on Artificial Intelligence (AI),

which uses computers to do things that normally require human intelligence. This means creating algorithms to classify and analyze data. It also involves acting on data, learning from new data, and improving over time. Just like a small human child growing up into a smarter human adult.

The difference between AI and regular programming?

Regular programs define possible scenarios and only operate within those defined scenarios. AI ‘trains’ a program to accomplish a specific task and allows it to explore and improve on its own. A good AI ‘figures out’ what to do when met with unfamiliar situations. Microsoft Word cannot improve on its own, but facial recognition software can get better at recognizing faces the longer it runs.

To apply AI, you need data. Lots of it.

AI algorithms are trained using large datasets so that they can identify patterns, make predictions and recommend actions, much like a human would, just faster and better.

At Sporecyte, we’ve done just that.

We have collected hundreds of thousands of images that we have tagged and given to our AI software, which then figures out the best way to detect Stachybotrys or aspergillus. We then use that to analyze the samples we receive, and generate the reports that you show to your clients..
