Applied methodology has been developed by and is licensed through the EPA. Detection and quantification include Aspergillus flavus (A. flavus and A. oryzae), Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus and Neosartorya fischeri), Aspergillus niger (A. niger, A. foetidus and A. phoenicis), Aspergillus versicolor, and Aspergillus terreus.  More details...
PCR screen: Avian Pathogen
The Avian Pathogen Screen includes analysis for three important avian pathogens communicable to humans: Cryptococcus neoformans, Histoplasma capsulatum, and Chlamydophila psittaci. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is employed to detect the DNA of the three pathogens. H. capsulatum analysis is qualitative and results will be reported as Detected or Not Detected. C. neoformans and C. psittaci results are quantitative and a standard curve is utilized to determine quantities present.  More details...

PCR-Chlamydophila psittaci
Analysis includes a quantification of an important avian pathogen communicable to humans, Chlamydophila psittaci, also known as Parrot Fever. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is employed to detect the DNA of the pathogen, and a standard curve is used to determine quantities present.  More details...
PCR-Cryptococcus neoformans
Analysis includes a quantification of an important avian pathogen communicable to humans, Cryptococcus neoformans. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is employed to detect the DNA of the pathogen, and a standard curve is used to determine quantities present.  More details...
