Neely, A. N., V J. Gallardo, E F. Barth, R A. Haugland, G. D. Warden, AND S J. Vesper. RAPID MONITORING BY QPCR FOR PATHOGENIC ASPERGILLUS DURING CARPET REMOVAL FROM A HOSPITAL. INFECTION CONTROL AND HOSPITAL EPIDEMIOLOGY 25(4):350-352, (2004).

Impact/Purpose:

To understand children's risks from exposure to molds in their environment and to explore risk management options for mitigating those risks.

Description:

Monitoring for pathogenic Aspergillus species using a rapid, highly sensitive, quantitative polymerase chain reaction technique during carpet removal in a burn unit provided data which allowed the patients to be safely returned to the re-floored area sooner than if only conventional culture monitoring had been used.
