ERMI

Description

United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) researchers have developed a metric called the Environmental Relative Moldiness Index (ERMI) to objectively describe the home mold burden (Vesper et al. 2007). A DNA-based analysis called Mold Specific Quantitive PCR (MSQPCR) of 36 molds including, the 26 Group 1 species associated with homes with water damage and the 10 Group 2 species which are found in homes independent of water damage, forms the basis of the ERMI.
