We offer expertise in fungal diagnostic testing using traditional culture methods and serologic assays for fungal antigen and antibody. In particular we pride ourselves on providing reliable results for Aspergillus antibody serology for the purposes of screening for sinonasal aspergillosis in dogs, and Cryptococcus latex agglutination antigen testing for diagnosis of cryptococcosis.
For information on submitting specimens for testing, please see https://www.vetmed.ucdavis.edu/hospital/support-services/lab-services/clinical-laboratory-services/forms-and-guidelines. Fungal culture and susceptibility testing can be requested by searching for Bacteriology/Mycology using the keyword ‘fungal’. Aspergillus antibody and Cryptococcus antigen testing can be found in the ‘Immunology/Virology’ menu.
