Duration of incubation of fungal cultures.

Published

Journal Article

To determine the optimum duration of incubation for recovery of fungi, the results of 2,173 consecutive clinical cultures were reviewed. Overall, 94% of fungal isolates were detected by day 7 and 98% were detected by day 14. Yeasts were usually (98%) detected within the first week of incubation. Recovery of molds required more time, but 81% were detected by day 7 and more than 96% were detected by day 14.
