Typical Mold Colonies

Slide 24

November 2011

This is a typical mold colony. Colonies are things that we see that we have to work from, to make them out in the laboratory to be able to identify the organism; however, looking at a culture plate sometimes gives you a little information but many times doesn’t help you at all. The colonies can be multi colored; they can be white, off white, brown, tan, green, yellow, pink, brown, or black. They can be all sorts of colors and you may get a ball park idea of what kind of organism is but it is not going to tell you specifically what it is.
