EMSL Analytical -- EMSL Analytical has created a bed bug testing kit to simplify the process of bed bug identification for pest control professionals. Our new testing kit includes easy-to-follow instructions for taking samples of the suspected pests, making it easy to detect and identify bed bugs.
Bed bugs feed exclusively on warm-blooded animals, including human, typically when they sleep. They have been detected in a variety of places such as hotels, offices, apartments, and houses. The pests only grow to a size of 4 to 5 millimeters making them difficult to detect, but EMSL’s bed bug test kit makes it easy to identify them.
After sampling is performed with the bed bug testing kit, a bed bug data sheet is filled out and should be submitted with any samples. The sample and bed bug data sheet is then sent back in a postage paid envelope to our advanced DNA testing laboratory. A laboratory report is then provided after the laboratory performs testing. Results can be received the same day the samples are received in the laboratory if needed.
“Scientists have recently discovered that bed bugs carry Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcua aureus (MRSA), a dangerous microbial pathogen classified as a “staph” germ that is resistant to first-line antibiotics,” states Charles Li, Ph. D., Director of PCR and DNA Analysis at EMSL Analytical. “EMSL Analytical laboratories use sophisticated DNA testing that generates rapid, inexpensive, and accurate results you can trust for bed bug identification.”
EMSL has created additional testing kits to accommodate all analytical needs, including mold (ERMI), radon, asbestos, allergens, and water.
