English to Polish translations [PRO]
Medical / microbiological tests: yeast-like fungi
English term or phrase: polysaccharide capsule test
Suggestions for any same-day tests necessary to complete the identification are printed on the lab report. These include tests such as carotenoid pigment, apiculate cells, rectangular cells, sporangia, polysaccharide capsule, growth without oil, convoluted colony, growth at 37*C, and hyphae/pseudohyphae. If the tests are not sufficient to complete the identification, then standard microbiology references and literature should be consulted.
