India Ink Mounts

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


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

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).
