India Ink Mounts

For the direct microscopic examination of CSF for Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii

Method

Place a drop of India Ink on the specimen, mix well with a sterilized loop, and cover with a coverslip.

Note:
The best brands to use are “Pelikan” or “Talons” India Ink (you will need good quality India ink and the best is what tattooists use).
