Abstract

An opaque, water-insoluble quality control material with a skinlike microscopic appearance was prepared by inoculating melted xanthine (0.4%) agar with filamentous fungi and dispensing drops onto glass slides. After solidification of the agar, the material was rapidly cleared by 10% KOH, revealing fungal elements stained by Cellufluor reagent.
