Reagents, Microbiology, Fungi/Yeast
Definition : Microbiology reagents used to induce the propagation (culture) and identification of any of the eukaryotic organisms that live as parasites or feed on dead or decaying organic matter and reproduce either sexually or asexually (fungi), including molds and monocellular fungi (yeasts); some reagents are used to determine fungi susceptibility to antimicrobial agents under laboratory conditions (in vitro). Fungi/yeast reagents include buffers, stains, controls, and the laboratory media capable of supporting fungi growth. Most fungi known as pathogenic to man belong to the group, Deuteromycotina.
