||In air conditioned workplaces (mainly offices) with no filter downstream of the humidifier, high numbers of bacteria and fungi, e.g. Aspergillus fumigatus, A. niger, Neurospora sitophila and Penicillium sp., were found. Extensive medical examinations of 714 mostly female employees yielded no evidence of any allergic respiratory disorders. The examinations included pulmonary function tests, allergy tests and serological reaction tests.
