Competency in laboratory mycology, a specialty area of clinical microbiology, depends on the knowledge, experience, and awareness of the mycologist. In addition to proper collection of specimens, thorough knowledge of processing techniques, tests, stains, and reagents used in the identification of pathogenic fungi is critical for rapid isolation, accurate identification, appropriate treatment, and avoidance of 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.
