PETANA, Walter B.  and  WANKE, Bodo. A modification of the indirect fluorescence test (IFT) for Paracoccidioidomycosis. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 1976, vol.10, n.6, pp.323-326. ISSN 0037-8682.

A modification of the indirect fluorescence test (IFT) for serological diagnosis of Paracoccidioidomycosis is described in which formolized budding forms (yeast cells) of the fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis are used as antigen. A further modification introduced is a less eiaborate technical procedure of the test without lowering the sensitivity of the reaction. The test may be considered as adequateiy accurate and easy to perform in any laboratory with immunofluorescence facilities.
