Committed to Excellence

RealTime Laboratories, Inc. (RTL): RTL is a molecular and microbiology laboratory specializing in the detection of mycotoxins in human and environmental samples.  At the forefront of the war on exposure to environmental toxins, RTL uses patented ELISA testing to help patients and their physicians determine the cause of illnesses related to the harmful toxins produced by molds.  

Mycotoxin Panel

i.Quad panel mycotoxin – includes 15 mycotoxins 

ii.KCES performs strategic dust or material collection to ensure you the lab is getting the best sample from your property and to ensure the least probability of a false negative test result. 

  1. Single or composite dust samples
  2. Drywall, wood, fiber or fabric samples
  3. Inner mattress, furniture or carpet pad dust samples

E.M.M.A. – Environmental Mold and Mycotoxin Assessment

Hayes Microbial Consulting "HMC":

HMC is known as the industry leader in testing for mold and other environmental toxins. When a house is positive for mycotoxins, KCES will often use a HMC test to determine the exact location of a mold colony. HMC tests, along with modern inspection tools can detect mold particles and spores from the inside of walls, or surfaces around suspect or compromised areas. 

  1. Mold Spore testing

  • Tape samples
  • Inner wall air sampling
  • Swab tests
  • Air samples*

*Air samples are not a standard testing protocol at KCES.  Stagnant air samples have proven to have a high probability for a false negative. KCES can/will collect air samples when the circumstances are conducive for reliable sample results. 


Moisture Meter. This device gives a moisture level reading for building materials.  KCES staff has been trained extensively on this device to assess high risk areas in your building.


Infrared Camera. KCES staff have been trained on the many benefits of an infrared camera. With this device, KCES is able to detect temperature variances that should or should not be present. Infrared photos are included in the Kester Clear report (when applicable) with a detailed explanation of findings. This is crucial, innovative technology within the mold inspection industry.
