Test performed on isolated organism in pure culture. Send infecting mold on Sabouraud dextrose agar slant; agar plates are not acceptable. Place sealed agar slant inside clear, liquid tight SAF-T-PAK bag and seal tape liner. Place sealed bag and requisition inside white biohazard SAF-T-PAK envelope and seal. Transport at room temperature. Include antimicrobial(s), culture site, and suspected organism identification on requisition. Available drugs include Amphotericin B, Nystatin, Natamycin, 5-Fluorocytosine, Caspofungin, Fluconazole, Itraconazole, Ketoconazole, Voriconazole, Posaconazole, Miconazole, Clotrimazole, Terconazole, Terbinafine, and Grisiofulvin. Physician must specify drug(s) to be tested.
Test is sent to Mayo Medical Laboratories; performed by UT Health Science Center at San Antonio. Note that due to CDC regulations, Organism Identification must be performed at Mayo Medical Laboratories prior to being forwarded to UT Health Sciences Center. Organisms on the CDC Select Agents and Toxins list should be shipped directly to the testing laboratory.
