RE: nail clippings for fungus

Have you tried mounting with a drop of KOH?  This will help to dissolve the
nail material (or soften it) while keeping the fungal elements intact.

In an effort to solve one of the great mysteries of the universe,  does
anyone including all of you hoof experts have a way to keep  nail clippings
on a slide. We have tried all the methods that our collective brains and
experience can come up with including soap soaking, overnite drying, charged
slides, etc. So far we have varied success with them. as I am sure you all
know, this is very important medicine, all your suggestuions would be
welcomed. This should be interesting.
