Competency in laboratory mycology, a specialty area of clinical microbiology, depends on the mycologist’s knowledge, experience, and awareness. Proper collection of specimens and knowledge of processing techniques, tests, stains, and reagents used to identify pathogenic fungi is key in rapid isolation, accurate identification, and proper treatment for the patient, and is critical in avoiding potentially fatal consequences for the patient. At the same time, the technologist must be able to distinguish between true pathogenic fungal infections and common laboratory contaminants to avoid miscommunication, unnecessary treatments, and unnecessary costs.


The goal of this continuing education program is to inform laboratory technologists about culturing and identifying fungi. After studying the material presented here, you will be able to:
  • Recognize and apply the correct laboratory procedures to culture and isolate fungi
  • Illustrate the proper choice of media, temperature, nutrients, and reagents
  • Demonstrate proper application of stains and tests to identify and isolate fungi
Level of Instruction: Basic
