Culturing for Dermatophytes (Ringworm) is a routine procedure in veterinary practice. While pathogenic fungi typically produce a color change that can suggest infection, microscopic examination is required for definitive diagnosis. The unique DermatoPlate®-Duo dual chamber culture plate with fully removable cover simplifies inoculation and sampling of organisms especially when using the tooth brush (MacKenzie) technique.
