Fungal volatile fingerprints: Discrimination between dermatophyte species and strains by means of an electronic nose

Abstract:

The potential of an electronic nose (e-nose) consisting of a hybrid gas sensor array system has been examined for species discrimination and strain identification of dermatophytes which are causative pathogens for human and animal infection. Temporal volatile production patterns have been studied at a species level for a Microsporum species, two Trichophyton species and at a strain level for the two Trichophyton species. After about 120 h principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysi...
