Streamline your workflow with FungID

InTray DM-FungID prepared culture media serves as a microbiology sample collection, transport, and culture device. Its enriched selective medium is formulated to produce distinctive colony growth from clinical specimens with mixed microbiota.  Engineered to be selective for positive growth of dermatophytes strains — all while inhibiting the growth of both gram+ and gram— bacteria, yeast and saprophytic fungi. Selective for Tinea and ringworm — commonly used to describe dermatophytes.

Combining several procedures into a single device saves time and money, while reducing exposure to collected samples. The all-new FungID products offers a larger media well for broader surface innoculation and colony growth, and can be used in tandem. 



Product Principle
  • Combine collection, culture, result and microscopic observation in one IVD device.  
  • Highly selective prepared media in a device designed for in-vitro specimen transport and incubation.
  • Presumptive-positive diagnosis without re-plating. InTray can be placed directly on microscope stage.
  • Fully enclosed cassette with Tyvek® air filtration prevents contamination and exposure, post-collection.  
  • See the complete FungID product line ►
Simple Convenience
  • InTray is designed for specimen collection/ inoculation at point-of-care
  • The sealed prepared media device is selectively formulated for accurate detection and identification of pathogens and non-pathogens 
  • Place directly on the microscope tray for observation through the cassette’s clear anti-fog window
  • Selectively produces distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology 
Accurate Detection

Specially formulated medium is selective for positive-growth for strains of multiple dermatophytes

Time to Result

Incubate inoculated trays for up to 14 days at 18-30°C, in the dark. Observe the trays daily for color changes through the clear viewing window.


InTray DM-FungID expires 27 months from the date of manufacture.

Upon receipt, store InTray DM-FungID at 18-25°C. Avoid refrigeration, freezing or prolonged storage at  temperatures greater than 40°C. Do not use an InTray DM-FungID if the medium shows signs of deterioration or contamination.

Rapid presumptive positives

FungID products contain very similar nutrients/compounds; however, the main difference is that InTray DM FungID's dermatophyte media has a ‘presumptive’ dermatophyte positive color change indicator, phenol red. This molecule gives a yellow color in acidic microenvironments and turns to red in alkali conditions. Dermatophyte fungi generally turn DM media from yellow to red as soon as the fungal colony can be seen with the naked eye.

As standard procedure, most clinical labs use SAB w/CC as their primary plating media for dermatophytes. InTray SAB w/ CC has the additional benefit of 100x magnification microscopy direct from InTray device — with no need for replating.

InTray improves efficiency because the culture can be scanned directly for fungal hyphae that have distinguishing morphology (micro/macro conidia et al) that may be worth the effort of further work-up. For some species of fungi, diagnostic morphology can be distinguished from InTray 100x magnification alone.
