Blood and Urine Tests for Mold, Mycotoxins, and Mycobacterium
Most Family Physicians, Doctors and Hospitals
Do Not Understand
What to Test You For Understanding what to Look for is the only way you can find it
Out of one thousand (1,000) Family Physicians surveyed, forty nine (49), stated having some experience with Mold, Mycotoxins, Mycobacterium or had been asked for fungal infection testing by patients. Those 49 further admitted that they utilized a generic lab test for their Mold testing and that they had no idea of what specific types of Mold they should test for. All Mold tests were initiated and performed at the patient's request. 100% of the 49 physicians who tested patients for Mold then referred those same patients on to a Specialist as their tests proved to be inconclusive.
We hear this story everyday from almost everyone calling in, you are not alone. People wanting to find out about their health and Mold, but can not find the right answers, the right tests that they need, or the right person to administer them.
We Take the Worry out of getting the Right Tests for Mold Exposure
Over the last ten years BioSign research has assimilated data from across the United States identifying the most common species of Molds typically found in North America. From this data we have complied and selected the most common species of Mold for our custom blood profile panels that are associated with poor indoor air quality, water damaged environments, Mold Exposure, and Mold Sickness.
Our Blood, Urine and Tissue Profiles are Unique
Our blood,urine and tissue profiles are unique throughout the industry. Our custom blood profile panels test for multiple species of the most common species of Mold found in the homes and businesses throughout North America.
and Multiple other Species
Along with the above Mold species we test for all major species of Mold documented to have caused U.S. Mold Sickness and Advanced Mold Diseases.
Mycotoxins are a secondary metabolite produced by mold spores that are pathogenic (disease causing) to human beings. There are more than one hundred forty seven (147) species of mold / fungi known to be pathogenic. The most common are Aspergillus sp., Penicillium sp.,and Stachybotrys. Of all of the mycotoxins known "Trichothecenes", are the most toxic to human beings and animals. Mycotoxins can remain in the human body for several years even after the person has been removed from the mold contaminated environment.
Fungal Identification (FID) Profile
This test is a strong indicator for invasive fungal infections within the human body. Also this test is one of the key tests used in mold litigation to prove damages to a persons health.
Fungal Identification (FID), is testing for the presence of mold / fungi within the human body. This test has become the new "Gold Standard" in the accuracy of testing for mold or invasive fungal infection. A urine specimen is collected; the specimen is cultured, and if when cultured, growth appears, will indicate a fungal infection. The process takes approximately 24 days to culture in the lab.
