Aids in visualizing fungal organisms. Two different methods can be used:

1. With a solution of Potassium Hydroxide (KOH).

2. Without KOH (see Directions step #5).

Directions For Use

1. Mix the specimen whether a skin scraping, fluid exudate or tissue with two drops of the 10% KOH on a clean slide.

2. Then add 2 drops of the lactophenol cotton blue.

3. Gently press a cover slip to make a thin mount. Also gently warming will aid in clearing the mount.

4. Scan under low power with reduced lighting. Switch to high power to check for the presence of suspected fungal elements.

5. If KOH is not available, the stain can still be used but start with step #2.
