PCR Test: Meruliporia incrassata
From PCR Testing
PCR lab analysis for the detection of Meruliporia incrassata. Meruliporia incrassata causes wood decay on structural timbers of buildings. Without the presence of fruiting bodies, positive identification of this fungus is unreliable. In this analysis, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) testing is used as a sensitive and specific molecular genetic assay to detect Meruliporia incrassate from decaying wood.
