Contamination of preservation solution (PS) with yeasts during solid organ recovery can lead to life-threatening complications in the recipients. The prevalence of such a contamination needs to be established. From January 2004 to December 2008, we prospectively investigated the potential fungal contamination of all the PSs collected in our institution using a standardised procedure consisting in centrifugation of 10 mL PS and incubation of the pellet seeded on fungal-specific medium for 15… CONTINUE READING
