Environmental Mold and Mycotoxin Assessment 

Background:

Mold in a house isn’t just a problem for people with allergies or asthma. Water leaks in homes provide an ideal environment for mold growth. There are many mold species, black mold or Stachybotrys Chatarum is more dangerous than the most common indoor molds such as Aspergillus and Penicillium. Mold exposure can cause immunosuppression and upper respiratory infections. Long term exposure to mold can cause acute to chronic illnesses.

Test Description:

The EMMA test is a quantitative PCR (qPCR) procedure for the detection of ten pathogenic fungal species in environmental dust specimens. EMMA includes six assays that were designed and used by the EPA and four assays that were previously developed by RTL. The qPCR method used in these assays utilizes the hybridization of a species-specific probe to a complimentary DNA strand to amplify and detect fungal DNA. The data generated for each specimen is plotted against a standard curve to calculate the amount of DNA present in the specimen (nanograms of DNA per milliliter of dust in PBS buffer). A process control (Geotrichum) is included to verify that the DNA extraction procedure was successful, and PCR positive controls are run with each amplification

The EMMA test uses sensitive molecular detection technology to look for the presence of 10 of the most toxigenic molds. It determines their presence and determines their relative abundance.

Product Overview

The Environmental Mold and Mycotoxin Assessment, or EMMA, is a highly sensitive test developed by RealTime Laboratories in 2019.

The scientists and doctors at RTL realized the importance of not only treating your body but treating your environment as well to make a full recovery. RTL conducted intense research to find the 10 most toxigenic molds associated with the 16mycotoxins they were already testing for.

Testing couldn’t be easier, only requiring a small cut out of an HVAC filter or a swab of dust from an area you can see or suspect mold to be present in.

The kit is packaged with two sterile swabs and a sterile piece of gauze to help collect a sample.

We can combine up to three samples to run combined as a composite result, otherwise each sample will be treated and charged as its own test.
