Abstract

Planktonic dinophyte species of the familiy Amphidomataceae attract attention as producers of azaspiracids, lipophilic phycotoxins that accumulate in shellfish and cause human health problem for shellfish consumers. About 30 species are describe, which are small and difficult to differentiate with routine light microscopy. These group of species is thus an obvious case where molecular methods for detection and quantification are needed. An overview is given on the state of the art and current use of qPCR assays for Amphidomataceae (Dinophyceae). New challanges related to quantification and assay specificity due to the continuously increasing diversity of species and strains are highlighted and discussed.
