Was especially evident during the warm, humid spring and summer months, which leads us to speculate that fungal contamination occurred during sample collection and was influenced by the aforementioned environmental factors. Unfortunately, we could not explore this further as it was beyond the scope of the present study. In addition, while mould growth proved to be an issue in the subtropical clima

Standard deviation) time from collection until being frozen in the laboratory for samples with no observed mould was 2.9 (3.0) days. In comparison for low level mould it was 4.9 (3.6) days (crude mean difference compared with no mould; 95 confidence interval (CI) = 1.7; 1.4 ?2.1 days), for medium level mould it was 7.4 (4.9) days (3.9; 3.4 ?4.3), and for high level mould 11.4 (10.7) days (7.1; 6.

Y arrival should be monitored and feedback provided if delays occur. Finally, if delays are expected swabs should be placed in the household refrigerator until mailed to the laboratory [20].Abbreviations ARI: Acute respiratory infection; Ct: Cycle threshold; DNA: Deoxyribonucleic acid; EHV1: Equine herpes virus 1; ERV3: Endogenous retrovirus 3; ITS: Internal transcribed spacer; OR: Odds ratio; ORC
