Samples (n=985) of raw meat and by-products obtained from beef and pork were first screened by the VIDAS system for the presence of Listeria spp., followed by testing for the presence of L. monocytogenes. Positive L.(More)
Stachybotrys (S.) spp. are omnipresent cellulolytic molds. Some species are highly toxic owing to their ability to synthesize various secondary metabolites such as macrocyclic trichothecenes or hemolysins. The reliable identification of Stachybotrys at species level is currently limited to genome-based identification. This study aimed to establish a fast(More)
