Lab Procedures   Lab Procedures

We offer here a series of laboratory procedures drawn from our own laboratories. These procedures are the actual ones in daily use in our laboratories.

The procedures describe one way to achieve the stated goals and are offered on an "as is" basis. Valid variations on these procedures (or indeed, entirely different approaches) are possible. If you choose to use these procedures as the basis for work in your laboratory, you should carefully review them for applicability to your setting. The kits and reagents we use may not be equally available in all parts of the world. In addition, the frequency of specific fungi in other parts of the world may require changes in the procedures.

It is also important to remember that the procedures must be performed by properly trained personnel. Many of the procedures involve use of materials or equipment that could be hazardous if not correctly handled.

Medical Mycology Procedure Manual

The procedure manual is made available in Portable Document Format (PDF) .
PDF formatting allows for documents such as these to be distributed in their original design and layout. To read a PDF document you need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer and/or a browser with this functionality built in (latest versions of both Internet Explorer and Netscape have PDF built-in). If you don't have the Adobe Acrobat Reader you can get it here for free.
