In-house screening test kit for simple and fast identification of dermatophyte infections on dogs and cats.
This is a culture medium for rapid isolation and identification of dermatophytes.
SUMMARY AND EXPLANATION:
In order to directly apply this method on samples taken in surgery or in the field, this kit is easy to use, giving the possibility of having a diagnosis in a few days. It contains specific nutrients, which facilitate the growth of dermatophytes and selective antibiotics which prevent the growth of non-pathogenic saprophytic mycetes and bacteria. The interpretation relies on the pH color indicator, which immediately
shows the presence of dermatophytes by a color change, because Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton produce alkaline metabolites.
- Rapid isolation and identification of dermatophytes.
- Color change: 24-72 hours in presence of dermatophytes
-Tests per kit: 10 tests / package
