Abstract

Cellophane touch tape preparation provides reproducible results in minimal time when compared to tease mount and slide culture techniques for the identification of fungi from culture plates, but it is difficult to perform from tube cultures. Here, we describe an easy to perform touch tape preparation method that provided a better result from fungal tube culture.
