Abstract

In our study, we have identified and typed mycotic colonies after isolation from air sampled in refrigeration cells of the “Aosta” Mechanized Brigade’s Regiments, in Eastern Sicily, through an active air sampling system. Typing has been carried out through macro and microscopic examinations and biochemical identification system machine called “Biolog”. All isolated mycotic species belonged to Aspergillus and Penicillium genus, which have both direct and indirect pathogenic concern for human beings.
