Q. Year Uploaded: 2004
I recently attended a mycology workshop and several of the participants mentioned ruling out Coccidioides immitis by using media containing cycloheximide. Currently if we have a white spreading mould that will not sporulate, we do a probe to verify Coccidioides or rule it out. Can we screen those using a simpler and cheaper test?

With regard to Minimal Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) measurements for fungi, what is generally considered the cutoff between "susceptible" and "resistant?" What do specific numbers actually mean?

In our project, we test the antifungal activity of some compounds against fungi as Candida or Malassezia.

My question is about the medium. Could you tell me why the NCCLS decided to use RPMI 1640 as the test medium? The problem is I can't grow the fungi in this medium. And, could you tell me why they propose to use RPMI 1640 lacking sodium bicarbonate? What occurs with sodium bicarbonate?
