What Are Mycotoxins?

Mycotoxins are toxic metabolites produced by fungal organisms, commonly known as molds. Mycotoxins are well documented in high quality peer-reviewed scientific journals to have a wide array of toxic effects in humans.  RealTime Laboratories’ dedicated team of doctors and scientists have thoroughly researched these compounds and determined the most clinically significant mycotoxins and secondary metabolites for testing.

Building upon this research, RealTime Laboratories utilizes a semi-quantitative competitive ELISA platform to determine the presence of 16 clinically significant mycotoxins

About the Panel

RealTime Lab’s Total Mycotoxin Panel detects sixteen of the most toxigenic mycotoxins, including 9 macrocyclic trichothecenes that have been proven to be caused by Stachybotrys, otherwise known as “Black Mold.” Testing is done using competitive ELISA, a highly sensitive detection method that uses antibodies prepared against mycotoxins.

All mycotoxin testing results are displayed in an easy-to-understand, numeric format, showing detection levels in parts-per-billion (ppb) as standardized by the FDA, WHO, CDC and Food industry for clinical use. Results also tell if the toxins in the sample were present, not present, or equivocal, along with ranges of detection for each.

What We Test For

Ochratoxin is produced by Aspergillus and Penicillium fungal species. Ochratoxin A is nephrotoxic and carcinogenic, causing various cancers and kidney diseases with prolonged exposure. This toxin has been determined through research to be a contributing factor in Balkan Endemic Nephropathy.

Aflatoxins are produced by at least 20 different Aspergillus sp. These toxins generally come from food intake and environmental exposure to the aflatoxin producing organisms. These toxins are carcinogenic, causing cancer in the liver and kidneys. They are also mutagenic causing detrimental genetic alterations to DNA that lead to cancer and immunosuppression. B1, G1, and M1 are considered the most toxic among this group. Chronic exposure is called aflatoxicosis which manifests as hemorrhaging, acute liver damage, edema, digestion problems, and eventually death.

Macrocyclic Trichothecenes are produced by Myrothecium, Podostroma, Stachybotrys, Calcarisporium, Cercophora, Cylindrocarpon, Dendrodochium, Phomopsis, and Verticinimonosporium fungal species. These compounds are common contaminants of grains, building materials, and HVAC systems. Exposure can result in skin necrosis, gastrointestinal tract lesions, hypotension, inflammation, cardiovascular alterations, bone marrow damage, immunosuppression, corneal injury, reproductive harm, diarrhea, weight loss, central nervous system toxicity, hepatotoxicity, and genotoxicity.

Gliotoxin is produced by Aspergillus, Candida, Eurotium, Trichoderma, Neosartorya, Penicillium, and Acremonium fungal species. Gliotoxin exposure generally comes from environmental exposure and ingestion of contaminated food sources. Gliotoxin has immunosuppressive properties, causes damage to DNA, and aids in the pathogenicity of invasive fungal infections. A. fumigatus, A. flavus, and A. niger are some of the most prevalent producers of Gliotoxin and these invasive organisms can be found in the blood of immunocompromised patients.

Zearalenone is produced by Fusarium sp. It is a common food contaminant and production by fungi increases in warmer climates. Zearalenone acts as an estrogen mimic, causing disorders of the reproductive system in both sexes. Additionally, zearalenone is carcinogenic, immunotoxic, and hematotoxic.

Why a mycotoxin urine test?

We primarily test for mycotoxins through a patient’s urine since it is non-invasive and the most stable option. We do have an option to test mycotoxins using a tissue sample.

Do you refund the tests?

Refunds for tests purchased from our website are allowed if requested within 21 days from receipt of payment AND prior to submission of the clinical specimen or environmental sample to the laboratory. Once the specimen or sample has been given to the shipping company for delivery, we will be unable to offer a refund. The refund amount will be 75% of the purchase price. Notification of intent to cancel must be conveyed by email at or via telephone at 972- 492-0419 x120..

How can mycotoxins be detected?

Mycotoxins can be detected with urine or home dust sample using one of our mycotoxin test kits.
