Culture of Blastomyces dermatitidis After Ammonium Hydroxide Treatment

Slide 12

February 2012

This happens to be Blastomyces that was recovered from a clinical specimen. And if you look at the right-hand side of the plate you can see bacterial colonies along there along with some of the fungal colonies, and as it gets further across to the left-hand side of the plate, there are just fungal colonies. This allowed for the organism to be recovered, whereas, it would have been missed probably or not grown well at all on a plate that didn’t have the ammonium hydroxide added to it.
