||Analysis of mould spores is essential in the investigation of health problems caused by fungi. A new method for this analysis is presented in this paper. It is based on the use of aqueous polymer two-phase systems. Spores distribute in the system according to their size and surface characteristics. Distribution is influenced by the choice of cultivation medium but is independent of spore age. It was possible to separate spores of different genera, such as Aspergillus, Penicillium and Mucorales, from one another. The separation of species within the respective genera was also possible.
