Gentamicin is used by many laboratories because it has a broad spectrum of action and can be stored at 4°C. Fungizone (amphotericin B) is added to control fungal growth. Antibiotics are added directly to respiratory wash specimens. Tissue obtained at autopsy or biopsy tissue is ground and resuspended to 10 or 20% in an appropriate diluent and then inoculated. Viral Culture Systems Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites; therefore, cultivation requires an appropriate living host system. There is no one host system suitable for cultivation of all viral agents.
