Hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) is a pulmonary disease characterised by inflammation that can be caused by, amongst other substances, a subset of 4 thermophilic mycelial bacteria: Saccharopolyspora rectivirgula, Saccharomonospora viridis, Thermoactinomyces sacchari, and Thermoactinomyces vulgaris. Air sampling analyses in highly contaminated environments are often performed to evaluate exposure to these species which are difficult and fastidious to identify by conventional techniques.
