RealTime Lab is known for its mycotoxin test panel where they are testing for the presence of 16 of the most common and toxic mycotoxins produced by indoor mold contaminants.
Aflatoxin Group: (B1, B2, G1, G2)Optimal range: 0 - 0.8 ppb
Aflatoxins can contaminate corn, cereals, sorghum, peanuts and other oil-seed crops. Thus, food contamination by this group of mycotoxins has been implicated in both animal and human Aflatoxicosis.LEARN MORE
Gliotoxin DerivativeOptimal range: 0 - 0.5 ppb
Fungal toxins are considered secondary metabolites which may provide selective advantage under particular conditons.LEARN MORE
Ochratoxin AOptimal range: 0 - 1.8 ppb
A toxin produced by different Aspergillus and Penicillium species — is one of the most-abundant food-contaminating mycotoxins. It is also a frequent contaminant of water-damaged houses and of heating ducts. Exposure can also come from inhalation in water-damaged buildings.
Trichothecene GroupOptimal range: 0 - 0.04 ppb
The trichothecenes are a large family of metabolites produced by several species of molds including Fusarium, Myrothecium, Trichoderma, Trichothecium, Cephalosporium, Verticimonosporium and Stachybotrys.LEARN MORE
ZearalenoneOptimal range: 0 - 0.5 ppb
Zearalenone (ZEA) is a mycotoxin that is produced by the mold species Fusarium, and has been shown to be hepatotoxic, haematotoxic, immunotoxic, and genotoxic. ZEA is commonly found in several foods in the US, Europe, Asia, and Africa including wheat, barley, rice, and maize.LEARN MORE
