Air-borne fungi can cause biodeterioration and health problems. To avoid these damages, it is important to check the mycoflora in indoor environments such as factories, museums and other public facilities. Yet conventional methods for checking fungi need a cultivation process step.
Studies  have reported that the Coriolis® μ concentration capability was enough to detect single fungal species by PCR amplification without cultivation process.
In our study , we evaluated a ultrarapid assay system for multiplex detection of air-borne fungi composed of the multiplex PCR-based DNA microarray detection system GENOGATE  and the Coriolis® μ.
