Turbidimetric Assessment of the Growth of Filamentous Fungi and the Antifungal Activity of Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles.

Abstract

Rapid assessment of fungal growth and screening antifungal compounds, such as nanoparticles (NPs), for effectiveness is a challenging procedure because no primary standards exist as they do for yeasts and bacteria. Because fungi do not grow as single cells, but as hyphal filaments, they cannot be quantified by the usual enumeration techniques used in… (More)
