Abstract

Morphological identification is still the most commonly used method for the identification of pathogenic fungi, with slide culture being the most widely used method. However, slide culture is associated with several problems. An alternative method using cavity slides to perform slide cultures was developed and the methodology and preliminary validation results are described.
