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 with the MYCOTOX Screen Test
is an essential step in reducing exposure to such toxin and their affects. Symptoms of mycotoxin can include cold-like symptoms, rashes, sinus inflammation, eye irritation, aggravation of asthma, inability to concentrate or fatigue.
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.
Suggested Sampling Locations:
IMPORTANT: At least 1 gram (or 1 tablespoon) of solid dust collection is needed for analysis.
1. Carpet: This kit is designed to collect dust from a carpet, so itll be best not to vacuum the floor in advance too closely to the date of the test.
2. Heavy Dust Collection: Even If you do not have any carpet to sample, you can collect dust from almost any surface as long as there is a heavy dust build-up available for sampling.
