Identification of volatile markers for indoor fungal growth and chemotaxonomic classification of Aspergillus species.

Abstract

Microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs) were collected in water-damaged buildings to evaluate their use as possible indicators of indoor fungal growth. Fungal species isolated from contaminated buildings were screened for MVOC production on malt extract agar by means of headspace solid-phase microextraction followed by gas chromatography-mass… (More)
