Spectroscopy Shines Light On Mold
When fungi grow indoors, they can potentially trigger asthma, allergies, and respiratory infections. Different species have been linked to different health problems. But identifying the specific type of mold in damp buildings requires growing the organisms and over a day of lab analysis. Now researchers have found that, with a spectrometer, they can identify in real time the microscopic fungi that may trigger allergies and asthma, promising . . .
