World Renowned Mold Expert, Dr. Sahay to Present Research at the AIHCE Conference in Toronto

Toronta, Canada 2/21/2009 12:24:33 AM

Scientists, researchers, experts and industry professionals from both the U.S. and abroad will be assembled for the annual AIHCE Conference in Toronto, Canada on May 30 – June4, 2009.  The presentation’s goal will be to present 4 years of research findings, as well as to learn and share knowledge about the sources, dispersal and deposition of airborne biological particles.  At the conference Pure Air Control Services, Inc.’s Dr. Rajiv Sahay will present his findings on surface-borne fungal contaminants of the indoor environment.

Dr. Sahay's, an AIHA LQAP TAP member, presentation is Tuesday June 2, 2009 from 10:50 am during the Advancing Concepts in Microbial Investigationsprogram entitled Dynamics of Surficial Mold in Indoor Environment (92) Dr R. Sahay, S. Parvataneni, R. Barnes, F. Aguirre, A. Wozniak, Dr. A. Singh, Dr. J. Gasana, EDLab at Pure Air Control Services, Clearwater, FL.
In preparation for the AIHCE conference, Dr. Sahay and his research team studied over six thousand surface samples and their findings were presented during a poster session entitled “Bio-Scan 400TM: Mapping of Indoor Fungal Population” at the Pan American Aerobiology conference.  According to Dr.Sahay, the Bio-Scan 400 TM technology is a do-it-yourself test to attain a quick, at-a-glance view of surface pollutants in the indoor environment.
“Source determination for microbial contamination is one of the many challenges in Indoor Environmental/Air Quality Industry,” stated Dr. Sahay, Director of Pure Air’s Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory (EDLab). “The Bio-ScanTM 400 technique is successfully used to collect surficial particulates in order to identify and determine levels of contamination.”  The Bio-Scan technology is utilized by industrial hygienist, building scientists, inspectors, physicians, contractors world-wide as well as packaged in the do-it-yourself program at
In 2001, Dr. Sahay—one of few aerobiologists in the world—joined the award-winning firm to lead its EDLab operations. One of the few Environmental Microbiology Laboratory Accreditation Program (EMLAP)-accredited laboratories in the country, Pure Air’s EDLab is also the first accredited environmental microbiology laboratory in the state of Florida.
