RealTime Lab’s Total Mycotoxin Panel detects sixteen of the most toxigenic mycotoxins, including 9 macrocyclic trichothecenes that have been proven to be caused by Stachybotrys, otherwise known as “Black Mold.” Testing is done using competitive ELISA, a highly sensitive detection method that uses antibodies prepared against mycotoxins.
All mycotoxin testing results are displayed in an easy-to-understand, numeric format, showing detection levels in parts-per-billion (ppb) as standardized by the FDA, WHO, CDC and Food industry for clinical use. Results also tell if the toxins in the sample were present, not present, or equivocal, along with ranges of detection for each.
What Are Mycotoxins?
Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by fungal organisms, commonly known as molds. Mycotoxins are well documented in high quality peer-reviewed scientific journals to have a wide array of toxic effects in humans. RealTime Labs’ dedicated team of doctors and scientists have thoroughly researched these compounds and determined the most clinically significant mycotoxins and secondary metabolites for testing.
Building upon this research, RealTime Labs utilizes a semi-quantitative competitive ELISA platform to determine the presence of 16 clinically significant mycotoxins.
