Article

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Air Quality Sciences (AQS) announced today that three of its experts will be taking part in the Fifth International Conference on Bioaerosols, Fungi, Bacteria, Mycotoxins and Human Health, to be held Sept. 10-12, 2003 in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. The conference will address state-of-the-art research and practical experience to improve the understanding of microbials, determine important agents and adverse human health effects, and the treatment, control and prevention of exposure.

"Past conferences have generated publications highly useful to both scientists and practitioners," said Dr. Phil Morey, vice president of microbiology at AQS and a member of the Scientific Program Committee for the conference. "This conference should be of considerable interest to practitioners and consultants addressing indoor environmental quality (IEQ) problems, with new data being presented on many topics, including PCR, trichothecene mycotoxins, MVOCs, and bioaerosol sampling studies from around the world."

Members of the AQS Building Consulting group who will be presenting scientific data include:

Cynthia Lange -- "Comparison of Mold, Allergen and Endotoxin Exposure

Among Residential, Academic and Commercial Buildings."

Michael Andrew -- "Comparison of Culturable Airborne Fungi in Water

Damaged Buildings, BASE Buildings and the Outdoor Air."

David Brinkerhoff -- "The Effect of Construction Site Dust on Mold

Clearance Sampling."
