Are you looking for Fungus Testing and Analysis?

Today, Contract Laboratory received a request for fungus testing and analysis from a disinfectant manufacturer needing a Microbiology Laboratory needed for microbial efficacy testing of anti-microbial solution against fungus. In particular, they were looking for it’s efficacy against Candidiasis, C. neoformans cryptococcosis, and Sporotrichosis.

Fungus are classified in the Fungi Kingdom. A fungus is any member of the group of eukaryotic  organisms that may be unicellular or multicellular. Yeasts and molds are unicellular while mushrooms are multicellular.  According to the US Center for Disease Control’s website,  there are  1.5 million different species of fungi on Earth, but only about 300 of those are known to make people sick.
