Regulators have stated that knowledge of fungal identification is weak in microbiology laboratories, and many inspectors expect fungi to be identified as part of microbial contamination tracking. The problem is, few text books focus on the most common cleanroom isolates.
Pharmig has addressed a gap by profiling the most common fungi found in cleanrooms (based on FDA recalls) and presenting full colour guides to the cultivation and identification of these fungi. Included with the macroscopic and microscopic images is detailed advice on where these fungi are found and what the implications for their recovery means.
These laminated sheets are ideal for use on the laboratory bench, to assist microbiologists as they carry out their work, and as handy training aids.
