Patients at High Risk For IFD

Immunosuppressed patients are at high risk for developing invasive fungal disease, which is often difficult to diagnose.

Affected patient populations include:
  • Cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy
  • Stem Cell and Organ Transplant patients
  • Burn patients
  • HIV patients
  • ICU patients

Our laboratory also tests veterinary samples.
