Without proper diagnosis and treatment, dermatophyte infections can lead to permanent damage of the hair, skin, and nails. Molecular diagnostic testing of fungal infections allows for the accurate detection of dermatophytes that might be difficult to grow in culture, or in cases where a dermatophyte infection has already been treated, and allows for species-specific identification.

Additionally, the development of novel COVID-19 vaccines requires a look at the immune response in order to determine the effectiveness of the vaccine at preventing infection.
