Term Description

Yeast qualitation by gram stain. Yeast qualitation reported with microbiology culture results and reported under gram stain. Presence of yeast on gram stain is indicative of fungal infection caused by yeast. Morphologic features of yeast noted on gram stain may assist in identification of the yeast species. Yeast appear as small, refractile oval structures and may or may not be budding. Yeast cells are usually candida albicans [1].

Part Description

LP29134-1   Yeast
Fungi are eukaryotic microorganisms which manifest as yeasts, molds or a combination. Yeasts start as individual cells that reproduce by budding. Molds, which are long filaments or hyphae, grow by apical extension. Both yeasts and molds are heterotrophic and digest their food externally by absorptive nutrition. Taxonomically, yeast are characterized by their size and shape, the presence or absence of capsules, conidiogenesis (the process of daughter cell formation), presence of sexual spores, the formation of pseudo-and true hyphae and physiologic data. Species are differentiated based on the ability to assimilate and ferment carbon sources, and to utilize nitrate as nitrogen. Some opportunistic fungal pathogens found in humans are dimorphic. They grow as mycelium in nature and reproduce as yeast in the body. One example is Candida which can quickly transform from yeast to the hyphal phase in humans; this process helps it invade host tissue. [NCBI Books:NBK8125] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
