EMSL Analytical, Inc. Provides Simple To Follow Instructions
EMSL Analytical, Inc., a leading nationwide testing laboratory is now offering BED BUG Testing for anyone interested in testing for bed bugs. The laboratory utilizes DNA testing that allows for rapid, inexpensive and accurate results.
Collecting Your Samples Ė Inspect suspected contaminated areas, usually bedding, sheets, pillows, mattresses & seams, behind headboards and picture frames, bed rails, flooring and baseboards under bed for signs of bed bugs, bed bug droppings that appear as small specks similar to ground black pepper, as well as blood drops that may be left behind after feeding.
1) Send a bed bug in a zip lock plastic bag if you find one. Be sure to write the location on the outside of the plastic zip lock bag. (Example: Parents Bedroom)
2) If you do not find a live bug, collect your sample for bed bug DNA by swabbing or rubbing a cotton swab or Q-Tip along the areas outlined above as a collection point for your sample. Place it in a zip lock plastic bag and write the location on the outside of the plastic zip lock bag.
Please Note: You may swab different areas in one room with the same cotton swab or Q-Tip. To see if bed bugs are present in other rooms, take a separate swab samples and be sure to write the location on the outside of the sample bag. Each sample received by EMSL will be analyzed and billed as a separate sample.
Samples may also be collected with a dust collector that attaches to the end of any vacuum cleaner. The dust collector is available from EMSL Analytical at a cost of $7. To order a dust collector sampler, contact EMSL at 1-800-220-3675 east coast or 1-866-798-1089 west coast.
