An immunological procedure for the rapid and specific identification of Coccidioides immitis isolates has been developed. The specificity of the procedure is based on the fact that C. immitis produces antigens that are not produced by morphologically similar fungi. The procedure involved the transfer of heavy mold-form inocula to flasks that contained small volumes of brain heart infusion broth. Shake cultures were grown at 25 degrees C on a gyratory shaker at 150 rpm. The concentrated… CONTINUE READING
