Dermatophytes are fungi in the genera Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton. They are capable of metabolizing keratin found in skin, hair and nails of living hosts. The fungi characteristically may invade the cutaneous tissue of the living host but rarely penetrate the subcutaneous tissue. Tinea and ringworm are two terms commonly used to describe dermatophytes.
InTray Dermatophyte is formulated to produce a red color in the presence of growing dermatophytes. Moreover, the medium is formulated to assist in the macro-and microscopical identification of fungi characteristics. The medium inhibits most Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, yeast and saprophytic fungi. It is a single exposure system with dynamic built-in components and features that are designed for user compatibility and ease of detection.
Specially formulated medium is selective for positive-growth for strains of multiple dermatophytes; Accurately identify dermatophytes to begin effective treatment sooner.
