summary

The collection consists of 446 fungal cultures. The main focus is the toxigenic species with importance to human and animal health that belong to the genera Aspergillus and Penicillium, besides Fusarium, genus that belongs to the family Nectriaceae. These molds are considered important because of their potential carcinogenic, teratogenic and mutagenic effects (OMS, International Agency for Research on Cancer) and also due to the severe negative impacts on the economy and industry (CAST). For fungal preservation the freeze-drying method is employed preferentially. It is also used the method of freezing at -40° C in glycerol, the method of Castellani, the agar fragment blocks in polypropylene tubes and the periodical sampling technique. Currently the L-drying method is been tested. Click on the name of the collection, on the top of the page, for further information.
