Dermatophyte detection in your own clinic.


Simplify your classical dermatophyte culture and microscopy methods with InTray’s FungID device sytem. The prepared plated culture media in InTray FungID SAB w/CC enables simultaneous detection and observation of multiple dermatophyte fungi – a specific group of fungi that cause common skin, nail and hair infections in both humans and animals. Dermatophytes are zoonotic, meaning they can be transmitted across species and generally made up of three genera: Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Tyichophyton.



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 all-new FungID product line ►
Simple Convenience
  • InTray is designed for specimen collection/ inoculation at point-of-care
  • Saves time, material cost and waste, reducing exposure to collected sample
  • Place directly on the microscope stage for observation through the cassette’s clear anti-fog window
  • Selectively produces distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology

Time to Result
  • 1 - 21 days, incubated at 25ºC for positive dermatophyte identification
  • Extended 12-month shelf life (2-25ºC) from the date of manufacture
  • Can tolerate extended periods at controlled room temp (<25º) with no loss in performance
  • Nails
  • Hair
  • Skin

If a fungal infection is strongly suspected and the culture test result is negative, it may be appropriate to retest giving more care to specimen collection. Optimally, simultaneously inoculate samples on both InTray DM-FungID & InTray SAB without antimicrobials (e.g., for some pathogenic fungi inhibited by antimicrobials) 

Transfer of fungal growth to slide examination: Stained slide preparations can be made as appropriate based on 10x Obj. examination of InTray SABFungID. InTray Potato Dextrose Agar (PDA) can be used to induce sporulation



Shelf-life and durability

  • Designed for durability and stackable incubation
  • Extended 12-month storage. 

No re-plate or wet mount 

  • Once inoculated, no other culture preparation is required... saving time and cost. 
  • Designed for specimen collection/ inoculation at point-of-care, a fully enclosed system for transport, incubation, result and microscopic observation. 
  • The sealed prepared media device is selectively formulated for accurate detection and identification of pathogens and non-pathogens.
  • Visual chromogenic differentiation and/or selectively production of distinctive colony growth with typical identifiable morphology 

Key Features

  • Fully enclosed cassette with air filtration system
  • Nutritive culture colony growth medium, formulated for selectivity and specificity 

You'll immediately experience a reduction in:

  • Time-to-result
  • Cost of laboratory materials 
  • Medical waste
  • Risk of exposure or contamination
