InTray® DM-FungID™ Biomed InTray DM FungID culture media for dermatophyte fungal pathogen diagnostics

27 month Shelf Life 

InTray® DM-FungID™

InTray DM-FungID prepared culture media serves as a microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device. Its enriched selective medium is formulated to produce distinctive colony growth from clinical specimens with mixed microbiota.  Engineered to be selective for positive growth of dermatophytes strains — all while inhibiting the growth of both gram+ and gram— bacteria, yeast and saprophytic fungi. 

Easily detect organisms that cause Tinea and ringworm. 

Combining several procedures into a single device saves time and money, while reducing exposure to collected samples. The all-new FungID products offers a larger media well for broader surface innoculation and colony growth, and can be used in tandem.
