There are many other biochemical tests that can be performed anther easy one being a catalase test. There are a few good microbiology lab manuals out there.

There are no others as far as I am aware and the chances of it being marneffii are unlikely. Finding pathogens is extremely unlikely unless I count opportunistic pathogens such as some aspergillus (?) which I would have to incubate at a lower temperature. I was looking for pathogens or anything affe...

Pathogenic fungi is of particular interest which is probably why I made the mistake of incubating too high in the first place. So at 37 all I think I am seeing is a few colonies of penicillium up to now. I plan incubate the same samples at 25 on monday and hopefully I will get some more growth if ev...

I was planning to just id using colony morphology, and use the adhesive tape method to observe microscopically, not sure whether i will need to stain as yet. Just going to categorise by genus.

Yes, anything which you would say has an effect on human health but it will be necessary to identify whatever I find.

Just interested in possible pathogens really thought it was the best general purpose media. Didn't want to be too selective.

The samples are indoor environmental samples. I have decided to lower incubation to 30C as I don't have the time left to retake the samples they have only been in at 37 for 48 hours and stored in a cold room for a week or so, so hopefully the ones requiring incubation will not be killed off. I know ...

So do you think I will be able to get away with reincubating at 25C. as I have already incubated at 37 for 48 hours?

incubation of fungi

Hi, I have been doing a project on sampling fungi but I have been incubating samples 37 degrees. The project is related to human health so i suppose i could say that i was just attempting to isolate pathogens, does anyone have any helpful advice, can it be rescued, can i reincubate at a lower temper...
