Oğuz Özyaral,Candan Bozok Johansson,Adile Çevikbaş
Mycological analyses were carried out on 30 row tale samples provided by 10 pharmaceutical companies and 50 packed baby powders of 11 companies. Mycological flora of nonpurified raw talc samples were determined. Fourteen types of mould strains were isolated and identified from 30 raw talc samples. From the baby powders which did not have any preservative agents in them, and have been packed under non - hygienic conditions with unsuitable packing cartons and /or paper materials, 49 types of mould strains were isolated and identified. In our study, a total of 403 mld strains were isolated and identified. Keywords : Talc powder, mycologic contamination, mould
