Equipment and products used in hot, humid conditions present an ideal growth environment for microbial organisms. These fungi, bacteria or mold can cause critical failures in products or health hazards for the humans who interact with the products. Equipment intended for use in environments susceptible to fungal growth are challenged to ensure they are acceptably resistant to either fungi, bacteria or mold causing material corrosion due to metabolic waste, unintended electrical conduction paths, mechanical failure of moving parts or introduce moisture to internal electronic components.

Whether your product is intended for high-humidity environments or you need to achieve standard compliance, MET can help you evaluate your equipment for fungal resistance, growth potential, field storage, and product functionality according to your compliance needs for acceptance. Our testing solutions help manufacturers prevent premature wear & tear on a product, system interference, and changes in product material properties.

Our environmental laboratory can simulate ideal growth conditions and expose your product to various types of fungal spores in our fungus chamber. As a single-source environmental testing destination, we can also evaluate your product to a number of alternative climatic and dynamic conditions to evaluate product performance after fungal exposure.
