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. Selective for Tinea and ringworm — commonly used to describe dermatophytes.
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.
Specially formulated medium is selective for positive-growth for strains of multiple dermatophytes
|Time to Result||
Incubate inoculated trays for up to 14 days at 18-30°C, in the dark. Observe the trays daily for color changes through the clear viewing window.
InTray DM-FungID expires 27 months from the date of manufacture.
Upon receipt, store InTray DM-FungID at 18-25°C. Avoid refrigeration, freezing or prolonged storage at temperatures greater than 40°C. Do not use an InTray DM-FungID if the medium shows signs of deterioration or contamination.

If a fungal infection is strongly suspected and the culture test result is negative, it may be appropriate to retest giving more care to specimen collection. Optimally, simultaneously inoculate samples on both InTray DM-FungID & InTray SAB without antimicrobials (e.g., for some pathogenic fungi inhibited by antimicrobials)
Transfer of fungal growth to slide examination: Stained slide preparations can be made as appropriate based on 10x Obj. examination of InTray SABFungID. InTray Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) can be used to induce sporulation
