Virtual lab tour
Take a look around the MRCM lab, based at Wythenshawe Hospital (part of MFT) in Manchester.
Profesor Malcolm Richardson shows you how to perform three assays used in diagnosing aspergillosis and other invasive fungal infections (video production supported by Pfizer):
- Platelia Aspergillus (Bio-Rad) ELISA for galactomannan antigen
- Fungitell (Associates of Cape Cod) assay for Beta-D-glucan antigen
Fungitell (BDG) infographic
MRCM partnered with Goodwork to produce this infographic explaining the Fungitell Assay for detecting beta-D-glucan in serum. This biomarker indicates the presence of an invasive infection caused by many fungi including Aspergillus, Candida, and Pneumocystis.
