Now more than ever the potential health effects of mycotoxin, produced by various fungi growing in the indoor environment, are being given serious consideration due to its potential health hazards. Mycotoxins affect occupants in buildings primarily through inhalation.
The chemical substance cytotoxins can cause cell disruption and interfere with essential cellular process. Some mycotoxin are potent carcinogenics, some are vasoactive, and some penetrate the blood-brain barrier to cause Central Nervous System (CNS) effect. The assessment of the extent of mycotoxin contamination is the essential step in reducing exposure to such toxin and their affects.
The Environmental Diagnostics Laboratory at Pure Air Control Services provides an ELISA based technique (Limit of Detection is 0.14 parts per billion) for the rapid screening of trichothecene mycotoxin.
