Different Analysis Testing for Mould and Mycotoxins


LIVE Webinar

Tuesday 10th October

11:00am QLD | 12:00pm NSW/ACT, VIC, TAS |11.30am SA | 10:30am NT | 9:00am WA

60 mins, plus Q & A.

In this 60 minute presentation plus 15 minutes Q&A, Lindsay Goddard will delve into moulds and mycotoxins, exploring how they spread and affect our health.

Register today so you don’t miss this incredible opportunity to learn about moulds and mycotoxins in our FREE webinar.

Spores play a crucial role in the survival and reproduction of moulds, and Lindsay will explain why most moulds produce them so easily. Lindsay will also explain how mycotoxins are toxic compounds primarily produced by moulds to outcompete other organisms.

She will unravel the immune responses triggered by mould proteins, understanding the differences between IgGs and IgEs and how they can cause delayed reactions and rapid allergies, respectively and how by combining mycotoxin and immunoglobulin testing, we can gain a comprehensive understanding of immune reactions to spores and mould produced toxins. To aid in assessing mould exposure and potential health impacts, she will delve into mycotoxin testing and the high specificity of LC/MS technology. Join RN Labs and Mosaic for an enlightening session that sheds light on mould-related health concerns and their diagnostic approaches.


Learning outcomes:

  1. How Moulds produce spores for their reproduction and survival, making them easily dispersed through the air.
  2. Why Mycotoxins, highly toxic compounds, are not consistently produced by all moulds but serve as a means of competition with other organisms.
  3. What testing Methodologies are utilised for Mycotoxins and Mould: including why ELISA testing is not used and why LC/MS technology is used. Lindsay will cover half life and accuracy.
  4. How IgEs testing provides insight into histamine responses to specific moulds, including seemingly benign ones like Cladosporium.
  5. How combining mycotoxin and immunoglobulin testing offers a comprehensive view of immune reactions to consistently produced spores and mould-produced toxins, aiding in understanding their influence on health.
