As medical researchers continue to evaluate the health effects of fungi (indoor bioaerosols), it is imperative that the analytical technologies being employed are as accurate, rigorous, and reproducible as possible.

Thanks to a Technology, Application and Development (TAD) grant from the Syracuse Center of Excellence, Bluepoint Environmental (formerly the Mycology Department of Environmental Laboratory Services) and SUNY ESF have formed a team of research and industry professionals to help improve the ability to detect and characterize fungal bioaerosols in indoor environments. The goal of this collaboration is to develop the integration of macroarray analytical techniques and technology in a commercial laboratory, and ultimately make this technology available to the broader indoor air quality marketplace.
