Aspergillus niger


The AspNig dtec-qPCR comprises a series of species-specific targeted reagents designed for Aspergillus niger detection by using qPCR. Aspergillus niger is a fungus and one of the most common species of the genus Aspergillus. It causes a disease called black mould on certain fruits and vegetables such as grapes, apricots, onions, and peanuts, ornamental plants and is a common contaminant of food. A. niger is less likely to cause human disease than other Aspergillus species. Nevertheless A. niger is one of the most common causes of otomycosis (fungal ear infections), which can cause pain, temporary hearing loss, and, in severe cases, damage to the ear canal and tympanic membrane.
