Fungal infections represent a constant threat in hospitals. Traditional monitoring involves impacted culture media that are incubated for several days so that the fungal species may grow. These systems are limited by their link with culture techniques, involving a time lapse to results of around 7 days and by a maximal sampling rate of 100 L/min.
Bertin’s Coriolis μ air sampler could be an interesting alternative to such systems. In this application note, discover how Coriolis combined with qPCR was used for detecting A. fumigatus DNA in hospitals.
