Fungus Culture Storage

Fungus Culture Storage Abstract The practitioner who performs mycologic studies in a private office, hospital clinic, or research laboratory is confronted with the problem of specimen storage while waiting for cultures to grow and develop. Because adequate shelf or cabinet space for more than a few tubes is frequently not available, cultures may be mislaid. Whereas bacterial cultures are usually placed in an incubator, identified and disposed of in several days, mycologic specimens on Sabouraud's medium are incubated at room temperature for an average period of 2 weeks. The culture tube rack described in the following report was designed by me and built for less than $5.00. It has proved to be efficient and utilizes a minimum of space. The rack may be placed on top of a cabinet or hung on available wall space. Materials and Method Pieces of scrap plywood are carefully selected for the desired length, thickness, and freedom from defects. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association

Abstract

Abstract The practitioner who performs mycologic studies in a private office, hospital clinic, or research laboratory is confronted with the problem of specimen storage while waiting for cultures to grow and develop. Because adequate shelf or cabinet space for more than a few tubes is frequently not available, cultures may be mislaid. Whereas bacterial cultures are usually placed in an incubator, identified and disposed of in several days, mycologic specimens on Sabouraud's medium are incubated at room temperature for an average period of 2 weeks. The culture tube rack described in the following report was designed by me and built for less than $5.00. It has proved to be efficient and utilizes a minimum of space. The rack may be placed on top of a cabinet or hung on available wall space. Materials and Method Pieces of scrap plywood are carefully selected for the desired length, thickness, and freedom from defects.
