Mold-Specific Quantitative Pcr: the Emerging Standard in Mold Analysis

spacer
spacer
Abstract:Molds can cause health problems like infections and allergies, destroy crops, and contaminate our food or pharmaceuticals. We can't avoid molds. Molds are essential players in the biological processes on earth, but we can now identify and quantify the molds that will be most problematic and remove them in a timely manner. Through the recent development and application of the technique of mold-specific quantitative polymerase chain reaction (MSQPCR), we can identify indoor molds accurately and with such quantifying precision that predictive models are emerging that can help define abnormal mold conditions.
