Hands On Fungal Identification

An Intensive & Interactive 3 Day Laboratory Workshop

Innovation Stockyard At the Kit Bond Incubator
4221 Mitchell Avenue, St. Joseph, MO 64507 

Learn Fungal Identification the correct way by understanding classification and exploring macroscopic as well as microscopic features which differentiate each genus and species. Using simple identification keys developed by Microrite, learn to identify important cleanroom isolates. 

This hands-on workshop will allow you to examine up to 30 commonly encountered cleanroom fungi. You will also learn about the various phases of the same fungus often not caught in automated microbial identification reports. 

Since fungi isolated from cleanrooms may originate from various sources it is important to identify these fungi to pinpoint the contamination sources. You can use the knowledge gained in this hands-on workshop to evaluate the condition of your clean facility and identify risk to your product. 

Attendees will learn how to reduce the number of incorrect IDs by understanding the polyphasic approach to fungal identification. Additionally, examining morphology and the structures of cleanroom fungal isolates helps in understanding the efficacy of disinfectants against hard to kill fungi. 

Which industries does this workshop apply to? 

Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology, Medical Device, In Vitro Diagnostics, Food, Beverage, and Pharmacies 

Who will benefit? 

Quality Assurance, QC Microbiologists, and Training Personnel
