Dermatomycoses are common clinical infections of dogs, cats, cows, horses and other animals. The causal dermatophytes are mycelial fungi, which possess keratolytic properties that allow them to invade skin, nails and hair. The fungal culture test consists of individually wrapped plates with removable lids that allow for easy inoculation and collection of samples for identification. ChroMyco® Fungal Culture Test contains Dermatophyte Test Medium (DTM) and is designed to diagnose the most relevant veterinary pathogenic fungi ? called dermatophytes ? Microsporum, Trichophyton and Epidermophyton spp. DTM contains agents that suppress the growth of saprophytic fungi and contaminating bacteria, while allowing the growth of dermatophytic fungi. These fungi will turn the color of DTM from orange to red. 4 petri plates per box.
