- Vital staining of fungal elements in deep-seated mycotic lesions during experimental murine mycoses using the parenterally applied optical brightener BlankophorR Rüchel
University of Gottingen, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Bacteriology, Germany
Med Mycol 38:231-7. 2000..There was little evidence for uptake of the dye by non-infected tissues. It is suggested that radioactive labeling may render parenteral Blankophor suitable for radiographic localization of deep-seated mycotic foci in the host...
