    Additional important fungi, including Stachybotrys Chartarum; many produce mycotoxins that are dangerous for human health. 24 vials for testing by kinesiologists, chiropractors, homeopaths and naturopaths.

     

    FU3 61 Aspergillus Carneus
    Produces mycotoxin citrinin.

    FU3 62 Aspergillus Clavatus
    Commonly isolated from soil, plant debris, and indoor air environment. Produces the mycotoxins cytochalasin and patulin.

    FU3 63 Aspergillus Flavus
    Commonly isolated from soil, plant debris, and indoor air environment. Produces the mycotoxins aflatoxin B and cyclopiazonic acid. A rare cause of pulmonary disease.

    FU3 64 Aspergillus Glaucus
    Commonly isolated from soil, plant debris, and indoor air environment.

    FU3 65 Aspergillus Nidulans
    Commonly isolated from soil, plant debris, and indoor air environment. Produces the mycotoxin sterigmatocystin.

    FU3 66 Aspergillus Ochraceus
    Common indoors. Produces mycotoxins ochratoxin A and penicillic acid.

    FU3 67 Aspergillus Ustus
    Found in the soil and also on cardboard, paper, rubber, birds, and in dried fruits, nuts, cheeses, citrus fruits, seeds and grains. Produces mycotoxins ausdiol, austamide, austocystin and brevianamide.

    FU3 68 Aspergillus Versicolor
    Commonly found on mattresses and carpets and in cellars/basements. Produces mycotoxin sterigmatocystin. Prevalent in over 5% of fungal infections of toenail, particularly involving big toe.

    FU3 69 Bipolaris
    Linked to allergic and chronic sinusitis and chest infections. Produces mycotoxins cytochalasin, sterigmatocystin and sporidesmin.

    FU3 70 Blastomyces Dermatitidis
    Found primarily in the Mid-West and Northern United States and Canada. Causes blastomycosis (lung infection, chest pains, coughs, fever, painless sores). Produces mycotoxins cytochalasin, sporidfesmin and sterigmatocystin.

    FU3 71 Coccidiodes Immitis
    Most commonly seen in the desert regions of the southwestern United States, and in Central and South America. It can cause a disease called coccidioidomycosis (Valley Fever).

    FU3 72 Cryptococcus Neoformans
    Found in soil throughout the world. Can cause lung infections (cryptococcosis).

    FU3 73 Cylindrocarpon
    Found in wet indoor environments. Produces mycotoxin trichothecene.

    FU3 74 Memnoniella
    Found in soil and plant debris but also inside buildings, especially on cellulose-based materials. Often found growing with Stachybotrys, but smaller so enters lungs more easily. Most typical symptoms are throat irritation, eye and nose itchiness and rashes. Produces mycotoxins trichothecenes.

    FU3 75 Myrothecium
    Often found on materials such as paper, textiles, canvas and cotton. Produces mycotoxin trichothecene.

    FU3 76 Penicillium Aurantiogriseum
    Commonly found on mattresses and carpets. Produces mycotoxin Penicillic acid.

    FU3 77 Penicillium ChrysogenumCommonly found on mattresses and carpets.

    FU3 78 Penicillium Nordicum
    Commonly isolated from fermented meat products such as cured ham and dairy products. Produces mycotoxin ochratoxin A.

    FU3 79 Penicillium Verrucosum
    Found on cereals (e.g. wheat, barley). Produces mycotoxin citrinin and ochratoxin A.

    FU3 80 Pithomyces
    Often found growing in soil, decaying leaves and grasses. Produces mycotoxin sporidesmin.

    FU3 81 Rhizopus
    Found on mature fruits and vegetables, jellies, syrups, bread, peanuts, leather and tobacco. Produces mycotoxin rhizonin.

    FU3 82 Sporothrix Schenkii
    Found throughout the world in soil, plants, and decaying vegetation. Skin lesions characteristically following lymphatic pathways.

    FU3 83 Stachybotrys Chartarum /Stachybotrys Atra, Stachybotrys Alternans Or Stilbospora Chartarum
    Also known as black mould. Commonly found on wallpapers. Also on paper, cardboard, wallboard, wall framing when persistently wet. Linked to sick building syndrome. Produces mycotoxins roridin E, satratoxin G & H and trichothecene.

    FU3 84 Wallemia
    Found worldwide, and typically contaminate low-moisture foods, carpets and mattresses. Produces mycotoxin walleminol.

  • Comments

    Mycotoxins are produced by moulds. One mold species may produce many different mycotoxins, and the same mycotoxin may be produced by several species.

    Mycotoxins have the potential for both acute and chronic health effects via ingestion, skin contact, and inhalation. These toxins can enter the blood stream and the lymphatic system. They inhibit protein synthesis, damage macrophage systems, inhibit particle clearance of the lung, and increase sensitivity to bacterial endotoxin.

    There is evidence that they can cause cancers, kidney damage, gastrointestinal disturbances, reproductive disorders and suppression of the immune system. We also sell a Mycotoxin Test Kit.

    This is one of three Fungus Kits. We often think viruses are the most important threat, but fungal infections, while often less dramatic, can have profound and long lasting effects on health. The fungus can have a direct effect (e.g. an allergic reaction) or they can affect health through the mycotoxins they produce.
