Abstract:

Specimens submitted for microscopy and culture include aspirates, scrapings, and tissues. Cotton-wrapped swabs should not be used because an inadequate quantity of material is recovered and desiccation occurs. Flocked swabs, although not officially approved for use in collection of specimens for fungal culture, may sufficiently capture fungal elements so as to be acceptable for specimen collection. Unpublished data suggest that this is the case, but more evidence is needed to confirm that these specimens can be recommended for use.
