Molds produce toxins known as mycotoxins. Molds are ALWAYS present in homes or workplaces that are water damaged and they are ALWAYS producing mycotoxins. Even small amounts of mold growth in the air conditioning or ducts will result in the occupants being chronically exposed, constantly breathing mold spores and their mycotoxins, resulting in illnesses.
It is well established in medicine and science that exposure to molds and mycotoxins indoors is hazardous, and more so in children and the elderly. How a person reacts to molds and mycotoxins depends on that personís health status, if they have other health conditions, how long is or was the exposure, the personís genetic makeup, and the nutritional status of the patient.
MyMycoLab is a laboratory specializing in blood serum antibody testing for mycotoxins. Our laboratory tests for 12 different mycotoxins for both IgG and IgE antibodies. This is the most precise and accurate method to determine if a person has been exposed to mycotoxins.
Mycotoxins and molds have been called "The Great Masquerader" by the World Health Organization. This is because they imitate so many other illnesses and conditions that they are difficult to diagnose and treat.
The first step is to see if you are suffering from the effects of mycotoxins and molds. Molds are biological, but mycotoxins are toxins, therefore much more dangerous. This blood serum test is the most precise and accurate test there is for the detection of the body's reaction to mycotoxins, both toxicologically and/or allergically. With the results of this test panel, a health care professional can then take the next step and start treatment.
Each test result comes with a full explanation of the mycotoxins, what the results mean, and what are the recommended treatments, with over 110 references as a guide.

This blood serum test is the most precise and accurate test there is for the detection of the body's reaction to mycotoxins, both toxicologically and/or allergically. With the 24 results of this test panel, 12 IgG and 12 IgE mycotoxin antibodies, a health care professional can then take the next step and start treatment.
The cost for the panel of 24 antibodies is $380; this is our introductory cost.
Frequently asked questions
- 1. Could mycotoxins play a role in most chronic diseases?
Yes, many people suffer from the symptoms caused by mycotoxins and only get treatment for their symptoms. By having the test results, a health care practitioner can find give the right treatment.
- 2. How do you know if you've been exposed to mycotoxins?
If you have been exposed to molds and feel unwell, you most likely have been exposed to mycotoxins. Molds are the gun, mycotoxins are the bullet.
- 3. What kind of testing is available for mycotoxin exposure?
The most accurate testing for mycotoxin exposure is by blood serum antibody testing for 12 different mycotoxins by far. Urine testing doesnít test for as many mycotoxins nor is it precise, as urine is a body excretion, like sweat and stools.
- 4. What is the cost of the test?
Our introductory cost is $380 for the panel of 24 test results: 12 different mycotoxins with IgG and IgE antibodies to each.
