Determining the presence and toxicity of mycotoxins requires sophisticated equipment and training that is beyond the scope and ability of the majority of the available mold testing labs. We are the first to provide a simple procedure for mycotoxin testing for IAQ professionals and concerned consumers that may be impacted by the presence of mycotoxins in their environment. Our lab has over twenty years experience in testing for the food and agricultural industries on a national and international basis.
What are Mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are resistant to environmental factors such as heat and pH changes. If mycotoxins are ingested, they produce a variety of signs and symptoms depending upon the type of mycotoxin consumed, the health status of the individual, age, the diet of the individual and the dosage of the mycotoxin. Other routes of exposure such as inhalation and skin contact may occur resulting in disease in exposed individuals. Direct effects of mycotoxins can result in acute disease where severe conditions of disease occurs with death as a possible end result. Other important but less obvious conditions may occur such as rashes, necrotic lesions of the skin, bleeding, growth retardation, impaired immunity, reduced resistance to other disease agents and chronic effects such as the development of tumors. Inhalation exposure of mycotoxins occurs but the effects are not as well-delineated due to other factors potentially involved in the resulting disease condition.
